Button Wreath Ornament

Colorful stray buttons can be put to a new use as Christmas ornaments. If you don't have enough loose buttons,or the right colors, don't worry-- stores sell them by the bagful.

This is a good project for the kids to get involved in.


Needle nose pliers or wire cutters/16 gauge copper wire or 22 gauge green floral wire cut to 9 inch lengths/72 buttons/scissors/satin ribbon/seam binding for decorative bow.

How to :

Using pliers make a loop at one end of the wire.

Thread buttons onto the wire until you have enough to form the size of the wreath you want. This one is 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

Using pliers, bend the plain end of the wire around the looped end. This will form the wreath.

Use the satin ribbon to make a loop for hanging the wreath, tie the ribbon in a know about 3 inches about the wreath. Tie a bow of seam binding to decorate the wreath.
