Button Shade

Here is a simple project to try.   I loved a jar of buttons I had out as an accessory in my home.  
I wanted to do something new 
with them though, so I dumped them out and started to fiddle.  I decided to embellish a lamp shade with them. 

  I used an elmer's craft glue to add the buttons to the shade.  I liked mixing the different sizes and colors, but wanted it to remain neutral.  The light also changes the effect and shows off the texture and color of each button.  
It is especially fun to see people approach the shade to figure out what they are looking at.  This idea is something that you can do that will add a unique flare to your decor.
