Vintage Button Hair Bauble

Vintage Button Hair Bobble How-To | Hannah & Husband

When I was little, I would spend afternoons sorting through my mom’s old button collection while she sewed. So when I inherited Husband’s beautiful Nana’s vintage collection, it was like getting a jar full of gold! Since then, I’ve been trying to figure out ways to incorporate these little treasures into my everyday style. My latest idea: hair baubles! Here’s how you can make your own.

First things first: Gather your materials.

  • 2 identically cut pieces of felt
  • a hair clip (you can get these from any craft store or beauty supply)
  • needle
  • thread
  • vintage buttons
  • a glue gun

I started by sewing buttons onto the green piece of felt that I didn’t mind showing up a little behind them. Start with the biggest ones and then fill in with smaller buttons, beads, and pearls.

I could have sewed the hair clip on the navy piece before doing sewing the two together, but I chose to just hot glue it on. In retrospect, sewing probably would’ve made for a prettier back.

VoilĂ !
