I wanted to have a jar full of buttons somewhere in my home because I always thought that they looked really neat and that it would be fun. I had NO idea it would be so hard to come up with a collection of buttons to fill up the jar though. I went through what I had and what was left of my mom's collection and found a few:
However, I have a long way to go before even this small jar is full of random and unique buttons. I will now be on the lookout for button collections when I stop at thrift stores and yard sales as I had not thought to look for this in the past. Hopefully I will find enough to fill my jar. Originally I wanted to do only white buttons, but I actually like having the multiple colors with a lot more white than the color buttons. I think it gives a classy yet fun look to the mix and will look great with the other decor I plan to put the jar with!
Here is the photo which really inspired me and is the true reason why I wanted to do all white buttons. Aren't they just beautiful?!
