DIY Sports Button Display

How Do You Display Your Kids Buttons?

 

Growing up, my son played both soccer and little league baseball. We had lots of fun together being involved in these sports as a family, and have lots of wonderful memories.

Each season (for each sport) brought pictures, and with them we would receive two buttons. Since dad was busy being a coach, umpire, or referee, I was the only one who wore a button to the games. That left me one button (in pristine condition) to do something else with.

I came up with a very simple idea for displaying these much cherished buttons. When the project began, I had three or four buttons to display, and you can see how it has grown. Over the years, I received lots of comments and compliments from family and friends about how much they love my Sports Button Display.

Today, I thought I would share my easy DIY Sports Button Display with you.

A FANtastic Memories Chronology!

What You’ll Need:

  • Ribbon (I used about 5 feet of navy colored 1-1/2 inch Grosgrain Ribbon)
  • 2 Push Pins
  • Your collection of Sports Buttons

Directions:

  • Hold one end of the ribbon
  • Fold the ribbon to make a circle (this will be the bow part at the top of the Button Ribbon – mine is about 4-1/4 to 5 inches wide)
  • Overlap the ribbon end about an inch
  • Hold ribbon with overlapped area in the middle
  • Grab the front middle part of the ribbon and hold it with the overlapped area.
  • Fold the ribbon tail at an angle, so it goes straight down from the bow
  • Wrap the tail around the center of the bow
  • The ribbon tail should come over the top of the bow and hang down the front
  • Use Push Pins to hang on wall
  • Cut bottom of ribbon tail into a “V” shape with two points.
  • Attach Sports Buttons as you collect them

 

Here are PRINTABLE Directions for the Sports Button Display — what a great idea for the mom’s at a team party!
