Buttons. I have a small drawer full of them, because "you never know when you might need them -- that cardigan could lose a button one day". Sound familiar? Some of them are even for clothing items I no longer own! That's just crazy. I figure it's time to do something with these little shiny baubles and this simple DIY project is just the thing!
Like those costume jewelry magnets we featured a while ago (which, come to think of it, would make great thumbtacks, too), these DIY push-pins are a cinch to make. Seriously, if you have a glue gun, you can make these! They're insanely easy, which also makes them kinda brilliant. Check out how over on Fellow Fellow!
