Red Button Makeover

Hi friends!

This post doesn’t have anything to do with food or cooking, but it does have to do with real…buttons!

I decided to replace the boring tan buttons on one of my sweaters with an assortment of red buttons I found in my grandma’s button jar. (Some of the buttons are probably from the 50s or 60s.)  It’s made a rather boring sweater into a darling one. 

I love changing the buttons on clothing; it’s a simple way to make something unique. Also, I’ve found that thrift stores often have packs of unused buttons for super cheap.

Have you ever given your clothing a button makeover?

      Thanks Susan, I’m pleased with how it turned out. My favorite are the two that look like flowers.
