cute as a button necklace.

I love necklaces.
I cannot leave the house without one on.

I love buttons.

The two were destined to meet and fall in love.
All you need is:

pretty silver buttons,
glue,
{pretty sure that there is jewelry glue, but I had this left over from the debacle.}


Dab some glue on the round part of the bail,



Press it against the button.
Let dry.



Slide the happy new charm on a chain.


Take an obnoxious amount of self portraits with your phone until you find one that you hate the least.
Done.

New necklace.
Sew cute.
Sew easy.

  23. I can so relate to that story.. My 20 year old son has a "fake" front tooth. He HATES it too... His is totally fake though. He got it knocked out in a basketball game his Freshman year of highschool... But it also looks so odd in pictures because it's not quite the same color... I'm with you... That dentist sounds a little NUTS to me.
