Button Brooch with Buttons Galore & More

Hi, Connie here with Buttons Galore & More design team.  Today I will be sharing an idea using Toasted Graham Embellishment Bottle by 28 Lilac Lane.  The contents of the bottle remind me of graham crackers, rich in brown tones along with seed bead and sequins.  Taking beautiful embellishments and adding them to clothing, to accessorize, is a favorite of mine.  Making a brooch, to add to a denim shirt or straw hat, is where I started.

Taking a small piece of burlap and twisting it, made it easy to create a rose flower for the base of the brooch.   Tag the ends with a strong glue and back the burlap flower with felt, so the flower will not unravel.

Now the fun part.  Pour the contents of the Embellishment bottle on a dish (so you can see all of the pretties) and start selecting the buttons for the center of the burlap rose flower.

Using a strong glue, start gluing down buttons, sequins, pearls and beads.  Overlapping the buttons and tucking in the sequins under the buttons gives for a beautiful looking brooch. Add felt leaves and twine to finish off the brooch.   Glue a pin, on the back of the brooch, making it easy to attach to a shirt or hat.

Love how the "create" brooch looks on the straw hat.  Just attach to the hat, using the pin that was glued to the back of the brooch.

Here is the"inspire" brooch on the denim shirt.  Love the look!!!
Hope you give the Embellishment Bottles a try and create something to add to those hats, sweaters and shirts. Supply list here.

Thanks for stopping by~
