A button lampshade is a can be an unique way to display a button collection or just to have as a conversation piece in the living room. This is an easy DIY project, but it does take a little patience to get it right.
The first thing to do is to gather a lot - and I mean A LOT - of buttons from places like hobby and craft stores, garage sales, flea markets or online shops. Once you have those ready, about the other tools you need are basically glue, hot glue gun and a lamp shade of course. Get them glued on securely, pop a bulb in, place the completed shade over the lamp base and voila!
