@cali_cat:  I haven’t done this before, but my guess is a hot glue gun would probably work okay – those rhinestone and pearl buttons sound great! Let us know how this turns out!

@cali_cat:  wire, just get small thin black floral wire.  When you wrap it, be sure to tuck the ends into the loop/hole of the button or bead that you’re using.

Wire works well. I would not use hot glue. If you need to use a glue then use an epoxy or contact cement. E800 is my favorite because it is low fume and dries completely clear.
