DIY Idea: Wall of Buttons

DIY Idea: Wall of Buttons

Looking at Tracy Kendall's Buttons wallpaper the other day, we started thinking about how beautiful it would look in our home, and how it might not be too hard to create our own wall of real buttons...

We've seen an incredible button mural installed at Lula Cafe in Logan Square using pins rather than clothing buttons, and we think a similar look could be pulled off by pinning shirt buttons directly to the wall. We've also seen some inspiring paper and fabric button wall hangings, but we'd prefer to pin ivory buttons directly to our cream-colored walls for a textural, tone-on-tone look. The project would create a lot of pin holes, and it would take some time, but the result could be very striking.
