I’m so excited to share this! One of my goals in my recent sewing studio move was to use blog and sewing stuff to decorate my walls. My hubby finally had a chance to install this for me (not that I couldn’t do it myself, just – how much easier is it to have him do it?) and I’m thrilled to show you how to store buttons – on the wall!
I had been playing with the idea of threaded buttons for a while, and even started to store mine this way within jars.
But then I stumbled across this post on Coletterie and thought a curtain wire would be even better.
So I got the Ikea Riktig curtain set and a curtain wire, and I used the hooks to hang the threaded buttons and the clips to hang the packaged buttons. Since a wonderful and generous friend recently gave me a whole huge bag of vintage sewing supplies, including LOTS of buttons, I used up the 24 clip pack pretty quickly, even though I doubled it by using the hooks and clips separately.
Aren’t they pretty to look through? I love having them on the wall, kind of like the zippers, so my tools become my artwork.
