DIY: Button Epaulettes

When I’m bored, I find some sort of DIY project to indulge in. Some people shop, some people exercise, some people watch TV, but me, I DIY! I have quite a few projects that I did (before I started blogging), but never took pictures or wrote out instructions on how to do them. I guess we’ll start fresh. So from this day forward, I’ll remember to document my projects and share them with you guys. Of course,  I made this decision AFTER I started this DIY, so I have no before pictures of the blazer….sorry.
I love clothing with strong shoulders, bold shoulders, or just anything with lots of shoulder detailing. I had an old thrifted blazer that I actually haven’t worn since I bought it. I decided it needed to be “spiced up” a bit. I found this great DIY on Garbage Dress‘ blog, and decided to give it a try.
What you’ll need:
Buttons (your choice of color & size)
Thread (preferably in the same color as the buttons)
Needle
Scissors
1 Item of clothing (Blazer, Coat, Sweatshirt, Sweater, Blouse, Tshirt)Photobucket
It’s very simple. If you can sew the slightest bit, you can do this project. I started out sewing on my biggest button, and just worked my way around it with other buttons, ranging in different sizes. Just keep adding buttons until you get the look you want.
