Button Crafts


Making a Button Clock
Purchase a clock movement, hands, and dial template from a clock-parts supplier or a hobby store, and find a tin lid deep enough to conceal the works.

Tools and Materials
Round cookie-tin lid
Nail set
Dial template
12 buttons in various sizes, shapes, and colors
Multipurpose cement
Clock movement

Making a Button Clock How-To
1. Poke a hole through the center of the lid with an awl. Using a nail set, widen the hole to accommodate the shaft.

2. Refer to the dial template to position the button hour markers. Affix buttons with multipurpose cement. To assemble mechanism, follow manufacturer's instructions.

Making Button Tea Napkins
Winsome tea napkins carry a harvest of buttons to the table. It takes only a bit of embroidery to flesh out the suggestion of cherries, apples, lemons, grapes, or a pea pod.
