Simi from Buttons & Paint shows how you can make a skull embellishment out of buttons. The white and pearl buttons are perfect for this – the colors remind me of old bone. She shows it as a page in a textile book, but you could add this to many types of sewn projects. It would be cool on a tote bag, or the back of a jacket, or even embellishing a throw pillow. If skulls aren’t your thing, you can use this method to make button images in any shape. Get the how-to at Buttons & Paint.
