Keepers #4 (2013-2014)

Button Necklaces #14

Great job, girls!

Inspiration for our project came from THIS awesome pin. I liked the idea of incorporating buttons and this seemed like a fairly simple project for their little hands. (Note: instead of hot glue, we used tacky glue. I didn’t want to worry about the girls burning their fingers and the purpose is to have the girls do the work, not the mommies.)

It seems we all get a longer break; three weeks until our next meeting. November brings some exciting fall crafts and activities for us all!

p.s.
I’m making one of these for myself, but need to get more vintage buttons. I have a few, but am not quite there yet. I’ll definitely be posting a few pictures when it’s done!

    • Yes; this is Keepers of the Faith. There were no groups that met our daughter’s needs at the time we started either. The other group had very little girls with mostly cutting and glueing; thus our group was begun.

      I would highly recommend starting one, if you are interested. I guarantee if you add your address to their online database, which is free, you’d get quite a few people interested.

      It’s been a complete blessing!
