Haley Pierson-Cox from The Zen of Making shows how you can make your own buttons from scratch. The natural wood buttons she shows how to make are gorgeous!! She starts with pieces of scrap wood, shapes them into buttons, and then drills the holes. If you’re worried about using power tools, she also lists hand tools that you can use as an alternative. Or, you can see if you can sweet-talk someone with power tools into making them for you. Get the tute.
