Sustainable Sundays: upcycled buttons

Each Sunday we search and highlight upcycled creations made from over 2,000 sustainable shops on our Upcyclers Etsy Team!!! Shops that are actively upcycling and participating in our community are available for selections each week.

This week's theme is old vintage buttons. Check out these four amazing shops that save and upcycle buttons...

Debbie from Australia has a lovely shop on Etsy, and even has an entire jewelry section devoted to upcycling buttons.

How about some buttons on your walls?
This 8x10 wall frame made from upcycled material and buttons, would look great on anyone's wall! Check out more of this shop's awesome button art!

This reversible recycled denim headband has a detachable hair clip!  Since the button flower has both a pin & hair clip you can also wear it on your jacket, sweater, headband, purse or in your hair! We love the functional of this upcycled piece.  Lynn likes to use vintage buttons in most of her creations, check out her shop for more unique accessories.

This adjustable bracelet was made from vintage buttons and a soft vintage zipper.  Cindy from FabTabulous uses an assortment of upcycled buttons in her eco-friendly Etsy shop! 

Enjoy your Sunday (especially if you're a mother this week) and be sure to make it a sustainable Sunday!
