Small fabric scraps

Flat-back pushpins (thumbtacks)

Let’s Make It

Most covered-button sets come with instructions and the tools to make a covered button. Read the instructions on the package before starting.

1.Ask for help from an adult to remove the wire loop found on the bottom of the covered button pieces. Pliers should do the job pretty quickly.

2.Cut a piece of fabric that is bigger than the button you want to cover.

Gather all your inspiration on one board with these adorable pushpins. Make them to perfectly match your or your bestie’s personal space. Pinning has never been so fun!

Lay the fabric with the print side down on top of the rubber button-making base.
