kojo tutorial- how to make sprinkle covered accessories

how to make sprinkle covered buttons

I might’ve mentioned once or twice that Miss Piper Jane has quite the sweet tooth (maybe it’s a good thing that her dad’s a dentist?). I have to admit, I share her sweet tooth tendencies and even her affection for sprinkles. Of course, my Sprinkle Princess required some sprinkled accessories for her Sprinkle Party.

A word of caution before this tutorial- first, if you attempt ‘sprinkle-ing’ any signs or accessories and have little ones, I’d keep a watchful eye on both the sprinkled accessory and the little one. At Piper’s party, I spotted several little guests eyeing the sprinkled “FAVORS” sign like prey. Since the sprinkles are attached with spray adhesive, these accessories are not safe to eat.

With that warning, I should say that once I put the barrette in Piper’s hair and the pin on her dress, she didn’t seem to notice that she was wearing sprinkles (and thus, didn’t attempt to eat them). If you don’t think your little one would be similarly ambivalent, probably stick to the sprinkled frame and keep it up high.

To make the sprinkled accessories-

Collect a pile of buttons, spray adhesive, a jar of sprinkles, and clear nail polish.

Add a couple of layers of spray adhesive to the top of the button.

Pour sprinkles onto the button (put a dish below the buttons to catch the extra sprinkles). Let the adhesive dry for several hours (or even overnight).

Add several layers of clear nail polish on top of the sprinkles.* Make sure you cover all of the sprinkles. Knock off any extras- ensure that there aren’t any extra outliers that could fall off.

*To make the sprinkle covered frame, skip the nail polish step (just spray liberally with spray adhesive and pour sprinkles on top of the frame).

Sew the button onto a barrette cover (there is a great barrette cover tutorial at angry chicken), or in the middle of a pin.

The finished product? Perfectly sprinkled (but, one more time, not edible) accessories!
