cutting disc for buttonsI love the way these buttons turned out! Simply use a hand saw or miter box to cut a 1/4" disc from a tree branch, drill holes, sand all the roughness out, stain to your color taste or leave natural, and finally protect with a varnish.
I totally leave the natural bark around the button which gives it a one of a kind character.
painted buttonsThe buttons are easy to make and look beautiful on sweaters and much more.
If you prefer to save your time and energy I would love to see you wearing one of my handmade buttons.
