    Everything in this slideshow

    • Dress Up a T-Shirt

      Put a fresh face on a basic cotton T-shirt by covering the front with a burst of felt flowers and buttons in bright, summery colors that contrast with the shirt. Include a few simple circles for variety.

    • Be Bold

      The knee area of these aqua sailor pants bursts with blooms, both felt and button versions. Vary the hues of the background felt and center buttons for a riot of color. Run the blooms up the leg in random fashion for a bit more whimsy.

    • A Sweet Set

      There's no reason to sacrifice style on cool summer evenings or in air-conditioned buildings. Carry along a sweater that's as sweet as the sundress it teams with. Glue and stitch patterned ribbon on one shoulder, felt circles with stitched X's on the other shoulder, and floral trim on the hem and cuff. A raffia bag embellished with matching floral trim and felt circles completes the look.

    • Embellish a Headband

      Spice up an ordinary headband with a few bright buttons. Use hot glue to attach them to the denim headband.

    • Delightful Denim

      A playground classic, denim is supersturdy, supercomfy, and supercute with the addition of colorful flowers. Create a carefree look by choosing felt and button flowers in various sizes. Glue and stitch a patterned ribbon all the way around one leg, about 2 inches up from the hem, for added interest. The length of the jeans doesn't matter -- the look is great on any style.

    • Red-Ribbon Winner

      A strip of patterned red ribbon, stitched in place, is a lively accent to the neckline of this classic apron tank top. Add a punch of color by lining the back of the tank with bold buttons.

    • One-of-a Kind Flower Girls

      Gussy up the hem and hood of a cotton-fleece dress with buttons and felt flowers with button centers. A sleeveless khaki dress gains summery style with a similar combination placed along one shoulder. Floral trim glued to the pocket is balanced at the bottom with trim.

    • Funky Style

      Play up a garment's best feature -- in this case, a ruffled hemline -- to make it seem even more special. Floral trim and a few colorful buttons draw attention to the hemlines and vents on these cotton pants. To make securing the trims easier, put a dot of washable fabric glue behind each flower and then stitch. Sew buttons on in a jaunty arrangement. Adorn both legs, as we did, or just one: Random placement is all the more playful.

    • Make a Big Hit

      Comfortable enough for the home team, a polo shirt scores fun style. Dress up the placket with felt flowers and button centers. Decorate the bottom of the shirt with a random floral arrangement.

      Spice Up Your Pockets

      Cargo shorts and pants have so many pockets that they just beg to be accentuated. Glue a piece of patterned ribbon across the midpoint of a pocket, and sew on pockets. A wooden, flower-shape button adds a quirky touch. Add a different array of buttons and ribbons to other pockets to bring girl power to these boyish-style shorts.
