Make a Rustic Button Brooch

I cannot tell you how much I missed making simple projects like this one. When I get immersed in a big crochet project and it starts to become more tedious than anticipated, I itch to make something simple yet fulfilling that will ease my mind off. 

This is such a project and it gets finished in literally 5 minutes- like in five minutes.

I named it - The Rustic Button Brooch. Isn't it adorable?
Let's make it. 

For this project you need:

- a wooden (or other button)
- a paper or fabric flower (mine is paper)
- and a piece of crochet lace (ecru for a more rustic effect would be desirable) or ribbon
- (hot) glue (I used liquid silicon glue - mind, this takes time to dry)


 Add glue on one of the sides (you can add glue all over it if you like because you will add the flower in the end)

 Add the lace by making folds. Press it so it glues nicely.


Add glue for the flower...


 Put the flower on top.

Glue a pin at the back .


And that is it! 
Stand back to admire your new, adorable brooch :)

You can pin it on shawls, cardis, hats or bags.
