DIY: Button Brooch Necklace a la Anne Hathaway

Glitter N Glue Button Brooch Necklace A LA Anne Hathaway Oscars 2013Although I wasn’t crazy about her dress, the second I saw Anne Hathaway’s Oscar necklace I thought to myself… CLEARLY SHE READS MY BLOG!!!! lol Her Tiffany & Co necklace reminded me of a petite version of the brooch necklace I crafted a few weeks ago (here). I see you Anne! In honor of Anne’s Oscar win and what has become a little “DIY an Oscar winners necklace” tradition around here, I present to you a DIYable version of Anne’s Oscar night stunner…

Glitter N Glue Button Brooch Necklace A LA Anne Hathaway Oscars 2013 MATERIALSMaterials: Buttons, Brooch Closures, Safety Pins, Chain, Lobster Claw Closure

Glitter N Glue Button Brooch Necklace A LA Anne Hathaway Oscars 2013 BACKNow I have to admit I cheated a little #womp I got lucky and stumbled upon these mini brooches, but don’t worry if you can find any because they’re easy to create. Compile a collection of your favorite rhinestone buttons. Earrings are also a good alternative too. You can pic up basic brooch (or bar) pins at your local craft store (here). They cone in a variety of sizes. Simply remove the shank from the back of your button and use a little E6000 to apply the pin. Allow some time to dry and now you have your mini brooches!

DIY TIP: If the clasp of your pin is not secure and you’re worried about your brooch opening, apply a little glue to your closure to prevent it from opening.

    Anne Hathaway’s necklace (especially the back view) was my favorite part of her ensemble on Oscars night. I didn’t hate her pale pink Prada gown but I definitely appreciated her jewels more.
