Crochet Camper Van Wheel Change

Date: 22nd February 2014 | Category:


What are you planning to use for wheels on your camper doorstop? You might want to use felt, fabric or leather circles, crocheted motifs, embroidered hub caps or another ingenious solution - do send us a picture if you have found an ingenious alternative to the supercute oversized buttons on Emma Varnam's original van. 

However, if you want to use the actual buttons, then try ordering from Love Craft, a craft shop based in Afflecks Palace, Manchester. If you don't want to use the traditional black colour, there are also an array of other shades to try. Or if you do a search on Etsy or Ebay, (just type in oversized or 'clown' buttons) you might find other comparable buttons. Overspill on Etsy has even bigger plastic buttons, just incase you want to supersize!

If you want something a bit more snazzy, why not try spotted ones like these from The Button Company, which is one of our favourite places to buy buttons. Or some natural wooden buttons from The Little Button Shop.

Talking of wood - we absolutely love these ones from The Bead and Button Company, which we think look like they have proper tyre tread!
