Aren’t these flowers just as cute as a button?
OK, I know that was horrible… But I couldn’t resist.
Hello! and welcome to all of my new friends that might have stumbled upon this little blog after seeing me this morning on Local 5 Live! I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to return and show you a couple easy crafts that are so easy you could even make them with your kids…
You did remember that Mother’s Day is Sunday, right?
BUTTONS of all shapes and sizes
WIRE: prefer 22 gauge as it’s easy to work with, yet still has a little strength
To assemble the flower simply weave your wire up through one hole of the button and down through the opposite hole. You will do this with all of your buttons at the same time so stacked two or three together.
Next twist your wire… The trick I told my kiddos is to hold the wires while twisting the button… It makes it’s a lot easier.
Now if you want to stop here and just stick these in a potted plant… It adds a fun pop of color.
However you can continue and add some leaves to your button flower by attaching two buttons to the end of a piece of wire and wrapping it around the center stem.
Then your button flowers can be the star of its own show!
Since I come from a long line of women that had button collections… An added super special piece to our button flowers is that they contain buttons from my grandmas and my mom who are celebrating their Mother’s Day together in Heaven. It’s so nice to be able to look at these button flowers and remember them ❤️
I’d love to see the Button Flowers you make! Feel free to comment with pictures!
And I’d love to have you come back and visit tomorrow when I post the No Sew Fabric Flower Tutorial!
