The second step to making salt dough buttons is the painty step! Pretty simple really, I just did a couple of base coats, mixed paint colours to match the crochet flowers I planned on sewing the buttons to, added spots or stripes (I use the head of a pin to get nice little spots!) then did a couple of coats of spray on varnish. Easy Peasy!
And here they are added to the crochet flowers!
And all ready with labels to go to the shop tomorrow! I'm sooo excited!
Have you made anything that makes your heart sing recently! I want to keep all my spotty buttons to myself!
My salt dough buttons were a winner in the Best of Craftster 2012, how exciting!
