DIY Button Coasters


Make your own button coasters! All you need is buttons and glue!


1. Supplies: Your favorite buttons and E-6000 adhesive. 2. Start with a button and glue on six buttons around it. Remember to put glue on all surface that touch other buttons. Add another circle of buttons around the six, now you’ll need twelve of them. Be sure to move the coaster around when you’re done so that it won’t glue onto the table. I used a sheet of paper beneath while gluing. That’s it!

    I really like your idea. I think I may try it in christmas colors. Thanks for sharing on Pinterest.

    Such a cute idea. Just saw it on Craft. Would be cool to try this with boring white shirt buttons too. Would look very stylish I thing.

    • Erlend Erlend

      Sure Eddie, that would look really good I think, both clean and stylish. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    You could also put a layer of felt on the bottom.

    • Erlend Erlend

      Now, that is smart!

      that’s exactly what I was thinking, would make gluing it together easier. Put glue on the felt (or any kind of fabric) then place the buttons on top, smooth out and done!

  4. I love the use of buttons for coasters. And I really like the idea above about felt… stop it from scratching the table! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!

    I like the felt idea. My button stash is made up of all different sizes of buttons. The felt will help give it a stable area to glue onto.

    • Erlend Erlend

      Absolutely moonlissa, if I were to do it again I would use felt beneath 🙂

    • Erlend Erlend

      Thanks Cindera!

    • Erlend Erlend

      Love it! Especially the use of different sizes and colours – way to go Sian 🙂

  8. What a great idea! I’m going to make this one tomorrow. Instead of felt, I’m going to try a cork bottom. Cheers xo
