Found some old buttons from my mother-in-laws collection. I tossed them in with some beads ($1 at AC Moore). I love the emerald green one in the middle. It’s surrounded by teal. Needs some oyster shell color in there.
I’m going to try to make a button and bead barrette for my new pixie. I like a lot of things, but the glue gun I ambitiously bought 15 years ago was just used this weekend and the whole experience was out of I Love Lucy. I am not super crafty, but I love repurposing things that would otherwise sit in a tin for another 50 years.
I bought these clips for $2.99 (AC Moore) on Saturday. I’m thinking about turning it into a vintage, beaded and button barrette.
I”ll post the results tomorrow. I’m not promising perfection. There’s Martha, there’s Lucy and then there’s me, StephieLou. Somewhere in between.
