A carefully selected group of buttons, varying in size, can be transformed into a unique pin
1 For each brooch, choose three to five buttons in different sizes, textures and finishes coordinated by colour or style. Pearlescent buttons will give an elegant look. 2 Secure each one on top of the other, working in ascending order with the largest at the back, using a hot glue gun (available
from Hobbycraft). 3 To add more decorative detail, use a needle with coordinated coloured thread to stitch through the middle of the centre button before securing in place with glue. 4 Once finished, fix a badge pin (available from Hobbycraft) to the back using the glue gun.
For a more intricate flower design, use felt pieces cut into petals and leaves held together with a button or two in the centre.
