DIY ~ Hello Buttons

I adore buttons!!!! I had a HUGE collection until I did this latest DIY!!!!

I made a button lampshade! I have seen tonnes of pictures on pinterest, and we have a wicked lamp with a not so wicked lampshade! But NO MORE!!!!!! Here we go...


What you'll need:

~ buttons, buttons and more buttons {all shapes sizes and colors you want}
~ hot glue gun
~ glue gun sticks
~ lampshade


STEP 1: Lightly dry wipe your lamp shade to make sure there is no dust on it.
STEP 2: Heat up your glue gun.


STEP 3: Start gluing buttons onto your shade. Leave a little space all around cause it looks a little better. {I think.}


STEP 4: Keep on gluing!!! It takes a while...LOL 



 Isn't it amazing???? I absolutely love it! I picked all fall colors since that's the colors of our living room...

I definitely give this DIY a thumbs up!!! :)

Let me know if you try it!!! I would love to see other peoples buttons!!!

Cheers,
Messy
