Adding Buttons to Your Hats - Tutorial

Unfinished Wood Button
 Here's an idea! Paint some wood buttons to put on your crochet baby hats!

Here's a tutorial:

Buy some unfinished wood buttons from the craft store. This one below I bought from Joann's and the brand is Everything Mary. This one is approx. 2  1/2 inches in diameter.

Now buy some paint. I bought this metallic paint that would add an "antique" look to my button.

Now paint your buttons! Here is one unfinished wood and 2 painted with 2 different metallic acrylic paints.
Here's the finished product! All I did was thread my yarn, sewed my button to the hat, went back through the button holes one more time, back out the other side, cut my yarn and left a little "tied" look. This size is 6-12 months.  

Here's a picture of the same hat with an unfinished wood button. This size is 0-3 months and I did the threading a little different. Both of these hats are made with Nature's Choice Organic Cotton by Lion Brand.

Hope you Enjoy and can make some hats like this for your little one!
