50 Button Crafts: idea #39 – button garland

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:

Here is another idea for Christmas, or any time of year. I can totally imagine this would be so much fun to make and use for decorating a Christmas tree or for a festive but homespun holiday look. You can use waxed twine (see the image below from HomeTalk.com), some light weight wire (as shown in by CountryMomAtHome below that), or short pieces of stiff wire like FunkyJunkInteriors.net did in the image above.

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.
