I love my new Idea Board, but I just wasn’t crazy about my plain push pins. Digging in the back of my sewing machine drawer, I discovered a Button Cover Kit. Just what I needed to add a little color to my board. So I grabbed some more scraps from my stash, my plain thumbtacks and got started.
Using the template on the back of the package, I cut small circles of fabric.
I used a pair of pliers to pull off the hook thingy on the back of the buttons. They were easy to pull off.
The instructions on the package were easy to follow.
Voila! Instant button covers!
Then I just used a dab of hot glue to attach a plain thumb tack.
They add a happy pop of color!
