{Video Tutorial} How to Cover Tufting Buttons

I’m so excited to share a new video with our readers today! We had to cover buttons with fabric for our Upholster a Bench Cushion and Tufting project and thought that our readers (and the world) would love to see how its done. This is a very simple process to do and makes a world of a difference when upholstering a piece of furniture. Watch the video to learn how to cover your own buttons for your next upholstery project!

Supplies for this project:

7/8 inch 2 Half Ball Cover Buttons

Fabric of choice

Scissors & Invisible Ink Pen
