This summer themed button bobby pins tutorial is a quick and easy project that shows how easy it is to incorporate all those cute buttons in your collection into fun decorative bobby pins.
- Spring Themed Buttons
- Bobby Pin Blanks
- Wire Cutters
- E6000 Glue
- Sand paper
Using the wire cutter cut the shanks off the back of the buttons. Try to cut it as flush to the base as possible. I used a piece of sand paper to make my surface flat and ready to accept adhesive.
Safety Note: I recommend wearing protective goggles or lenses because the shank pieces can fly all over when they are cut off.
Add a small amount of the E6000 glue to the bobby pin blank. Then press the back of the button onto the glued surface.
Set aside to dry. Wait 24 hours before using; this gives the adhesive a chance to cure.
Total Spent on Project:
All that I spent on this project was a total of $3, because I already had the wire cutters, the glue and the sand paper. If you have some fun buttons, then all you need are the bobby pins, which can be found online on Amazon or at your local craft store.
