Today on Moral Fibres I’m featuring one of my very very favourite internet ladies, Mel Wiggins. Mel is going to show you one of her fantastic recycled craft ideas – a DIY statement necklace made out of spare buttons and felt scraps.
Done in just fifteen minutes, it’s the perfect craft for anyone lacking in patience for long-winded crafty projects. And the very best thing is that it’s so easy that even a crafting novice like me can easily complete it!
If you’re looking for some craft ideas for kids then this would also be the perfect project. Now that summer holidays are in full swing then if you’ve got bored kids on your hand just hand them some buttons, felt, scissors and glue (with supervision of course!).
For the DIY Statement Necklace You Will Need:
Scrap of felt
Length of ribbon
Now admire the finished product!
Leave the glue to dry, then ta da! A boutique looking piece made for just pennies from recycled materials!
I don’t know about you but I’m off to give this a go! And if you’ve got any favourite craft ideas then do share in the comments below!
