The holidays are over, and winter is here. It’s the perfect time to do some serious crafting if you’re stuck indoors. Fight off the winter blahs by making this button embellished Hat and Glove Set. It’s a fun way to give an old pair of gloves and hat a new look! We selected specific crystal buttons for this project, but you can also use buttons you already have on hand.

Arrange buttons on the hat and gloves in small clusters to determine the layout. Take a photo of your arrangement to help with placement as you sew.
Begin sewing the buttons on the hat and gloves. Start with larger buttons and fill-in around them with the smaller buttons.
We paired crystal buttons and flower shapes with a pastel green. You can also go bold with bright colors, fun shapes, and even letters. This is a fun project for kids. Let them pick out the colors and buttons. You can sew the buttons to their favorite hat and mittens.
If you use the crystal, or any of our specialty buttons, be sure to hand wash the hat and gloves. Lay flat to dry.
