Quick DIY: Buttons.

I'd like to make the quick DIY a weekly thing, but I can't promise anything. This is a super quick DIY to update the look of my mittens. I was going to do a button DIY post also including button jewellery and a cardigan I customised with a button design but I can't find them anywhere! When I do I'll be sure to post them.

I got these mittens from TU at Sainsburys when they had 20% off so they only cost a couple of pounds. I bought them in grey so that they would go with my coats but i still thought they were a little dull so I decided to change the buttons on them. I think I remember seeing some grey mittens with wooden buttons in Topshop but I chose to use these cute little cream ones for the DIY. I realise that this isn't the most exciting of customisations but I do like the idea of posting quick DIY's that are simple enough for anyone to have a go at.

Before & After.

Another idea I had for these was to stitch a design onto them, maybe something like the ones I posted here. I might try that if I can get my hands on another cheap pair of mittens!

Hopefully upcoming posts will be a few quick DIY's including rings inspired by some of Topshop's new pieces, lego jewellery and summer snoods, regular week in photos posts, more drawings, old artwork, sketchbook pages, more style inspiration, Shrinkle experiments, 'Wreck This Journal' updates & lots more photography.
If you have any other suggestions for posts you might like to see let me know.
I'm also trying to make more of an effort to reply to the lovely comments you leave, so please do check back soon.
