Ten Valentine Button Crafts

Buttons are an excellent  accessory to work with in craft projects.  Since they come in so many sizes and colors, the design options are great.  If you collect buttons, you may want to round up your red, pink and white ones for this collection of Valentine button crafts.

Here is the list of my ten favorite button crafts.

Best Valentine Button Crafts

1.  Button Heart On Canvas

To make this, you would need a canvas board, paint, some felt, and some red buttons.

  1. First, paint the whole canvas white.  When the paint is dry, tape off where you want the black stripes and paint on the black.  Once dry, peel off the tape.
  2. Next, cut the felt into a heart shape with a stencil.  Glue the buttons to the heart and glue the heart to the canvas.
  3. Free hand or stencil paint a message on the bottom with red paint.

2.  Love Button Frame

  1. Uu, these look so lovely. A nice idea as a Valentine gift, but for a girl

  2. I have a very substantial button collection, both vintage and newer. Many years ago when I first started collecting about 1990 , while living in St.Pete. & before everyone wanted them so they could charge hundreds of dollars for them, my neighbors , all elderly women, would come to my door with these beautiful old tins of their buttons,and their mother’s buttons and their mother’s , mother’s and so on. Those were some of my best. I was also given a lot more when I opened my own alterations business and my customers would come in with them as well. Back in 1990-1994 I made brooches and hair barrettes with some of my vintage buttons. I still have one large brooch (would work on a winter coat) and I used all brass buttons for this one and it still is my favorite one. I love my buttons so much now I hesitate to use them in crafts! When I die my kids will be able to make some money off all my vintage sewing stuff from all the sewing baskets I’ve acquired from auctions etc.
