12 Days of Handmade Gifts- Vintage Button Rings and Cufflinks

Hi Everybody! Welcome to day eleven of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts. Today I have a couple fun diy’s for you that are inexpensive and easy, to make great stocking stuffers. I am going to show you how to make rings and cufflinks out of vintage buttons.  Fun right!

Here’s what you need:

*Ring Blanks(Find some Here)

*Cufflink Blanks (Find some Here)

*Vintage Buttons

*Embroidery Floss



The first thing you want to do is thread your buttons. Either with a needle or with your fingers thread the floss through the button a few times and clip the excess threads short in the back of the button. Now place a big dab of glue on your button back and glue onto your cufflink and ring blanks. I placed the cufflinks and rings to dry straight on my thread spools. Let them dry overnight and they are good to go.

These little gifts could totally stand on their own, but they also do make an impressive and inexpensive addition to your holiday stockings! I have several of the rings and I wear them all the time! They are a lot of fun, and with adjustable ring blanks you can always be sure they will fit who you are gifting them to. All the men I know love the cufflinks. I hope some of you will try out these fun and easy little projects! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for my final gift diy of my 12 Days of Handmade Gifts! Until then….

Happy Crafting!
