DIY: What a Difference a Couple Buttons Make!

I have a pair of black shorts that I have never worn because they needed an extra something.  As you can see from the picture below they are very simple with a world of outfit possibilities.   I was in my local craft store this weekend and noticed there was a sale on buttons.  All of them were 50% off the marked price!  I quickly thought about what I could use buttons for and the black shorts came to mind.  I picked up a couple options, took them home, and decided on the vintage looking ones.  I very carefully cut the old buttons off, sewed the new ones on with a needle and thread, and viola!  Instant update.  This entire project cost me $1.40 for the buttons and a little bit of my time on Sunday.  I can't wait to wear these!  Happy Monday Everyone.


  1. Well done, they do add something!
    I have a pair of shorts from arden b. that have really similar buttons.

  2. How great are you!? I don't even think about simple things like this and even when I do, I am always far too lazy to sit down and actually get the job done. The new buttons are much much better!


  3. It actually makes the shorts look more alive. thats cool
