50 Button Crafts: idea #46 – Button Wreath Ornament

button wreath ornament from MarthaStewart.com

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:

This button wreath is along the lines of the stack style button ornaments I shared a few weeks ago. A great project to do with kids and it lets them do their own thing. While green buttons are necessary you might check out this post on dying your own buttons. Or just buy a bag of buttons in greens from the craft store and enjoy the time to talk about Christmas memories and crafts you remember as a child. MarthaStewart.com has instructions here.

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.
