How to Make a Button Christmas Wreath Decoration for Your Front Door.
Button Wreaths are a fantastic way to use up all the stray buttons in the house into something new and eye catching. If buttons are scare at your house, try buying a bulk lot on ebay for just a few dollars or check out your local stores.
Before starting out on the project consider the following.
The size of the wreath. Find the location you wish to place your wreath and cut the plywood according to your space. Remember that the larger the wreath, the more buttons (and patience to stick them) you will need.
The colour the wreath will take is also another consideration. The base colour that the wreath is painted prior to sticking the buttons should be within the same colour scheme of the buttons. For the best effect, paint the wreath the colour of buttons which least features on the wreath.
Once all the decisions regarding the button wreath have been taken, let the fun start! Begin by cutting the plywood into an oversized donut shape. Once you are happy with the size, paint one of the sides and allow to dry.
While the paint dries, sort out your buttons, trying to keep to 2 or 3 shades. Place the buttons on the wreath. Once you are happy with the layout, get the hot glue gun and stick. Decorate with Christmas bows or ribbons according to your style.
