Wonderful, I'm going to try that tomorrow. Thank you.


Fantastic idea!


NO, I can't believe it!!! Those buttons look amazing!

Oh good, begging already. I love it.


Dyeing buttons? Who'd a thunk it? Please share the projects!

Learning to add color to white buttons makes me glad I didn't throw out that boring jar of white buttons. Do you ever have a problem with the dye leaching onto white fabric?

On another note, your bold, vibrant decorating style is a perfect match for American-made BLENKO glass. I hope you have discovered and are using BLENKO glass. www.blenkoglass.com

West Virginia Janis

p.s. yes, we would love to see the Christmas crafts you made with the classmates


Oh this is FABULOUS! I can never find the right shade or color I am looking for or the store never has enough... I can't wait to try it!!! Thanks!

Love the buttons, way cute idea...too bad my boys could care less about cute buttons.


No way! That is so cool. I had no idea you could dye buttons. Thanks for the awesome tip.


That is awesome! I need to try that! I won't just pass white buttons by anymore!!!

Wow! Who'd have thunk it? LOL Cool idea that I must add to my list of things to never forget!
Peace & Love,


Ok! I'm humbly begging and pleading. Puullleeeeeze? Share your projects? And the whole button thing is amazing. Very awesome. Thanks for the fabulous idea.

I think colouring your own buttons is awesome. Please share your other project!


Like the others, I'm dumbfounded that you can dye buttons! How cool is that?! I am so begging to see the crafts the girls made!


I had NO idea!!

Please do share your craft ideas!!


What great information. I too have a gazillion white buttons. Soon to be much less. I would love to see your "Lily's Christmas Craft Party projects". Thanks


Wow, I never knew this?!? I am so going to the store tonight to buy dye!


those buttons are so festive!

love the button idea! wish I had a microwave ;(...but then i saw your lost of books you love & I too have the fondest memories of 5 little peppers!!!


It's been a while since I stopped by but I'm glad I did! I had no idea you could dye buttons so easily! This will be one for me to try!..and I'd love to see how easy it is to recover a seat cushion (from another of your posts).


I kept thinking it "should" be possible to dye buttons but couldn't figure out how. Thank you so much for your help!! Can't wait to try it!:)


I love this idea. Thanks for sharing it. Do you have any idea if the buttons bleed when you wash them if you use them on clothes after you've dyed them? (I don't know why you would know this, but maybe your genius mom has some experience with it?)

laura Gunn

I don't know if they will bleed. I'll have to give it a try.
