50 Button Crafts: idea #30 – button wreath

Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:

I’m coming to realize that I’m drawn to these ideas that use a bunch of white buttons. Why? Maybe because I figure everyone’s stash has lots of white or neutral colored buttons. Anyway, I think this is a really elegant look and timeless too. And what a wonderful way to honor an ancestor or ancestors by re-purposing their buttons. Make sure you document as best you can where the buttons came from. It will make the wreath have more value to your posterity if they understand the significance of these particular buttons.

It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
