DIY: Buttons That Don’t Fall Off

How to keep your buttons from falling off

I was pretty surprised no one was doing this except for me, so here’s probably the cheapest DIY on the planet. It’s winter, and coats without buttons do no one any good (unless you live somewhere like, I don’t know… Florida?), so buy some buttons with the open circle backs and just safety pin them on. You never have to re-sew them, and I’ve been going strong on one coat for more than three years without them coming close to coming undone.

Safety pins: $2.99Buttons: I grabbed these for $3.19 for 2 at JoAnn Fabrics. A little expensive, but it’s easy to find coupons, and you don’t have to get fancy ones. I found a coupon for 30% off.Grand total: $9.16 for buttons I never ever ever have to sew on again. Holla.
