Whether they’re candy-colored plastic or retro-chic, buttons seem to go everywhere these days: delightfully decorating jewelry, embellishing home d cor, and more. And anyone who knows how to use glue and do basic stitching and stringing can complete these 50 stylish, versatile projects with no problem at all. "Button up” a simple lampshade so that the light creates a fabulous graphic pattern of silhouettes. Craft a boutique-worthy brooch out of tiny vintage Bakelite bird buttons embroidered on felt ovals and set it in a sterling silver pre-made pin. The clean, contemporary photography that showcases the projects will appeal to today’s crafter--and amusing tidbits focus on such fun topics as button museums, the self-proclaimed Button King, and button lingo.
