DIY Flower Button Brooches for Fall Fashion Cheer!

DIY Flower Button Brooch

Hello button lovers! This is Katie from the Buttons Galore & More Design Team, and today I have a fun DIY flower button brooches project if you are someone who is just not ready to make that transition into the fall season!

Now, as a fall season girl at heart, I know making flower button brooches sounds a bit weird in September. However, there are those folks who just love spring and summer. If this is you, then these flower button brooches should make the fall season a bit more bearable and make those warm cardigans a bit cuter! Continue Reading →


Accessorize with an easy DIY Button Brooch!

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

Take a small piece of burlap and twist it, to make an easy to create rose flower to serve as the base of the brooch. Coat the ends with a strong glue to keep them from fraying, and mount the burlap flower on a circle of felt, so the flower will not unravel.

Now comes the fun part! Pour the contents of the Toasted Graham embellishment bottle on a dish (so you can see all of the pretties that are in it), and start selecting the buttons for the center of the DIY button brooch.

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

I love how the “create” brooch looks on this straw hat. It’s such a fabulous look for the fall season! Just attach it to the hat, using the pin that was glued to the back of the brooch.

Here is the”inspire” brooch on the denim shirt.  I love this look!

I hope you will give the 28 Lilac Lane embellishment bottles a try and create something to add to those hats, sweaters and shirts like I did!

Supplies Used:

28 Lilac Lane “Toasted Graham” Embellishment Bottle

Felt (leaves and back of brooch)
