Buttons are not just for clothes, we can use collect them too.

Whos go the Button?

Buttons are common objects that make getting dressed much easier. But buttons aren’t just useful. You can collect them, play games with them, or use them to make jewelry.

People have collected buttons for a very long time. You can start your own collection today. Just ask your mother or grandmother to let you look through their button boxes. Later, you might want to buy buttons at flea markets or button shops. Among the most fascinating and fun buttons to collect are those that don’t look like buttons at all. They’re shaped like animals, flowers, and foods, pencils and hearts, letters and numbers, musical notes and planets. In fact, buttons comes in almost every shape you can think of.

You can keep you buttons in many kinds of containers, glass, candy jars, wooden boxes and clear plastic boxes. Don’t use metal containers though. They can rust, and this will damage any metal buttons you might have.

If you like to use your buttons to create jewelry, here’s a simple necklace that you can make. All you need is a strong piece of thread and lots of pretty buttons. They should be about the same size. Using a sewing needle, thread on the buttons. If you don’t have enough buttons for a necklace, you can sew small circles of felt between each button. When the necklace is long enough, just tie both ends of the thread together and slip your button necklace over your head. If you would like to try something a little more difficult, see if you can create a button doll and other fascinating jewelries.

My great Aunt Eunice use to have jars and tin boxes full of buttons, all around her home.
I loved playing with them as a girl. Good read.
Thank you for sharing.:)

Buttons make a good treasure find. Some even have a story from a relative.
