I had intended to share the DIY instructions for my eating area valance today, but that proved to be a little more involved that I had expected. So I’ll have that next week.
So today, I decided to end the week with something a little more basic. I used these little jute rosette “buttons” in two places in J & A’s master bedroom. I used them in place of regular buttons on the newly-upholstered diamond-tufted chair back…
And I also used larger ones as embellishments on the ottoman slipcover…
Then I placed a bead of fabric glue around the edge of the knot.
And then wrapped the jute around the knot.
I continued, applying glue, wrapping, applying glue, wrapping, until I had the “button” the size I wanted. Then I snipped the jute, placed a little dab of glue on the end, tried to tuck it underneath the button as best I could (some of them wouldn’t really cooperate, but it didn’t matter), and then held it in place with a third straight pin.
I found that it was best not to let them dry completely on the cardboard…for obvious reasons (which is why I recommend wax paper). So I let them dry just a couple of hours, and then removed them and set them aside for about 24 hours to let them dry completely.
I mean, really…how much easier could that be?! And just think of all the things you could do with these cute little things!
Hope you have a great weekend!
