Craft ideas using novelty buttons, clear buttons and buttons in every color of the rainbow for all holidays and occasions of the year. Many of these projects are very easy to customize for any season or holiday!

Sweeten Up With Buttons This Valentines Day

Make someone you love feel special this Valentines Day!  Reuse some empty and clean jars as funky containers for goodies and gifts.

Using craft paints (I used Glass Gallery and Apple Barrel-both from Plaid), paint some hearts and polka dots onto the glass.

While the paint is drying (Gallery Glass takes a while), wrap some red and pink buttons up in wire to create handles for the jars.  A great place to buy buttons is Buttons Galore. When the paint is dry you can add another layer of paint decor then add red and pink buttons to the jars with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Let the jars dry completely before handling them to add the button wire.  Twist the wires around the jar rims in whatever way you like.  I made an extra one to decorate a wine bottle!

THEN, fill the jars up with candy goodies and you are all set to lay out a SWEET Valentine display of love!  Please share other ideas of things to put in the jars.  Sharing is a nice thing to do.
