I bought these cute floral buttons a couple of years ago. I planned to use them on a blouse but then I realised that the shape would make them awkward to do up and undo. They've been sitting in my button stash (yep, I've got a stash of those too) ever since. Then I saw a vintage floral celluloid necklace in this post on Va-Voom Vintage. I could use my buttons to make a vintage inspired necklace.
I got a chain and clasps. I used my trusty pliers (seriously, I use them all the time) to attach the clasp and the buttons to the chain.
|The flowers aren't spaced unevenly, I just positioned the necklace funny when I took the photo|
It was so quick and easy, and I really love it.
