Doesn’t it seem like this year is just flying by? We’re already in March and with a few celebrations ahead of us we can’t believe that Mother’s Day is just over 2 weeks from now!

Over the years we’ve picked up some amazing Mother’s Day craft ideas, from creating special cards to designing unique jewellery. Whatever you decide to get your mother for this special day we’ve learnt that something handmade and unique is always welcomed.

Our experience has lead us to create a specialised Mother’s Day craft collection on JosyRose so we can help you provide that special touch. If you’re a little bit lost of what to make or you need some inspiration, our collection is ideal for you to browse and buy at your leisure.

From buttons to ribbons and cards to motifs, we have it all so you can get her something special.

How To Create A Unique Bowl Out Of Buttons


It’s that time of month again where we share our handy tips and tricks on how to create cute craft projects. This month we’re taking a look at what you can create for the home and we have come up with this super easy tutorial on how to create a unique bowl out of buttons.

 All you’ll need is this:

•    Flat buttons – try experimenting with colours to create your desired look
•    Balloons
•    White PVA glue
•    Large paint brush
•    Scissors
•    News paper
•    Cup or can to balance balloon on while it dries

Step 1

 

Firstly, you will need to take one balloon and blow it up to the size you want your bowl to be as you will create your bowl shape using the curve of the balloon.


Step 2

 

Hold the balloon at the end with the knot and take your paint brush, dip it into your glue and cover the other end and sides (to the point where you want the bowl to end) in glue.


Step 3

 

Let the glue dry completely, to do this place the knot end of the balloon in a cup or can to balance the balloon.


Step 4

 

When the first layer is completely dry, apply a second coat of glue using your brush. Start at the top of the balloon and work your way down toward the knot. Attach buttons to this layer as close together as you can fit them.


Step 5

 

When you are finished attaching all of your desired buttons turn your button covered balloon upside down in your cup or can so that the knot is in the air and the buttons are balanced on the cup.


Step 6

 

When the second layer of glue and buttons is completely dry you will need to coat the buttons again with a third layer of glue.


Step 7

 

When your bowl is completely dry use yours scissors to cut the knot on the balloon to slowly let the air out. Use your scissor to snip any unwanted glue bits away from the button edge and there you go, your very own button bowl!
