Button Flower Bouquets

The children and I made these beautiful flower bouquets with buttons. I have one of the bouquets sitting in my sewing room, of course.









Here's how:

All need are buttons, wire, and floral tape.



Decide how long you want your flower stem to be, then cut the wire double that length. Place one button on top of the other and put the two ends of wire through the holes, each end in a different hole.



Now wrap the floral tape around the stem tightly, pulling just a tad and pressing the tape snugly onto the wire as you go.



Let me know if you make one. I'd be happy to post pictures of your bouquets on my blog with a link to your blog if you email them to me.

Happy creating!

Trudy

  8. Oh, we've got to do that! My Libby would flip over these. Now, only to get to my mother's button supply! ;-) lol

    I love the pine cone/acorn trade idea...I confess, I thought about suggesting that myself. Let's do it. Do your children do Nature Studies at all? Out here in the country we come across some really neat finds...maybe we could send some along w/ the acorns.
