Buttons can make a dramatic fashion statement and they are so easy to use, that with a little creativity, you can DIY. While accessory designer Helen James is to unveil her vintage glass button embellished belt collection at the 2009 Dublin Week, Minna’s 2009 Spring Summer collection features beautiful button embellished dresses.

Apparel, necklaces, rings, bracelets, earrings, hair clips, hair ties, belts, bags, hats, socks, shoes and so on look great with button embellishments. Everything from Bakelite and plastic buttons to wooden buttons and fabric buttons, are hot right now, and why not when these DIY Button Projects show so many great ways to use them?

OneBlessedSoul shows us how to make edgy looking necklaces, bracelets, earrings and bags using different kinds of buttons. ReebeckiSupergirl unveils her cute Button Tab Hat, and the cutest button embellished shoes are at Inspireco.

Vintage buttons can be glued to boring hair clips, hair pins and rings to make them look fantastic, as shown on Poshtidbits and LizardPrincessBeads.
