Create a monogram entirely out of buttons. Choose the colors scheme, size and type of buttons. You may even want to mix some beads in for extra style. It’s a lot of fun to create (I’ve done several myself) and the entire family will want to get involved. It’s a playful look and looks great all around the house, especially in hallways where all your guests can see!{found on spearmintbaby}.
