Fifteen minute Friday is all about creating projects that are quick, simple and fun. This week’s project is using recycled jars (that tall one is from honey) and adding ribbon and buttons to create decor.
I simply tied the ribbons from Offray around the jars and bowed one while knotting the other. I secured the ribbon and added the buttons with Aleene’s Quick Dry Fabric Fusion because it works great and dries so fast.
These two jars are a perfect addition to this amazing pillow that Laura Neiman created this week using these colors. Find out more about that over on her awesome blog HERE.
The buttons are all from my collection with Buttons Galore. The red buttons are Radiant Red and the blue in the bird is Robins Egg Blue. You can buy them all on the website of course!
Cute right? You can buttons up this flower towel to dye for at your house to. The towel is super cute and really easy to make. It takes about 15 minutes of creating, but allow for a break in between dyeing and rinsing that is much longer, as in 6-8 hours.
First, dye a white 100% cotton hand towel with Tulip One Step Tie Dye like so. I put a glass jar down over the area that I wanted to stay clean for the pink dye to create the flower when I did the green and blue.
Then I added the pink.
Follow the process to set the dye and rinse the towel then stitch on the buttons and stitch a stem with buttons from my Laura Kelly collection and embroidery floss from Coats and Clark.
It matches the bathroom decor I created for Z. Check out the shower curtain on my blog.
It used the same process and has buttons on it too. It just takes MUCH longer! I painted the canvases to match and that project is on my blog too, with buttons of course! Check out the flower canvas tutorial here!
