Decorate a jewellery box with a heart of buttons

make button box

We used a plain wooden box and buttons from old shirts to create this pretty jewellery box. Paint the box in your choice of colour – we used Farrow & Ball Cornforth White. Arrange buttons in a heart shape on the box lid. Stick the buttons in place with clear-drying glue.
