What you'll need

  • Buttons
  • Glue (we used Crafter's Pick The Ultimate glue, which is nontoxic and creates a durable bond; it's available at craft stores)
  • Thread
  • Elastic hair band
  • Adjustable ring base
  • Barrette base
  • Earring hoops (available at craft stores)

How to make it

  1. Ponytail Holder

    To make a ponytail holder:
    Use several loops of thread to secure your largest button to an elastic hair band. Glue other buttons on top.

  2. Ring

    To make a ring: Glue together a stack of buttons of diminishing sizes. Let the glue dry, then glue the stack to an adjustable ring base (available at some craft stores and online at Etsy's Wistful Supplies).

  3. Barrette

    To make a barrette: Glue together buttons of diminishing sizes to create four stacks. Let the stacks dry, then glue them to a hair barrette base.

  4. Earrings

    To make earrings: Thread an assortment of buttons onto a set of hoops.
