Button Button Whose Got The Button

Button Button whose got the button? I sure do lots and lots of them!

Do you have an assortment of button that you have collected over the years? Or perhaps you have inherited your Grand Mothers button jar. I don't know what it is about buttons, but I am fascinated with them. I have so many buttons that I don't know what to do with them and yet each time I have a piece of clothing that has worn out or become stained, I can't throw it out until I have removed every single button from every single item.

A Beautiful Wreath

White Button Wreath

Now here is a great idea that I absolutely love. Unfortunately I have not been able to find instructions on how to make, However, having said that, I think it will be easy enough to figure out. My thought is to use a re-made wreath in the size desired. They can usually be found at an craft store. Using a low heat glue to glue the buttons on..lots and lots of buttons. Use a ribbon to make a loop and bow for hanging. Any color of buttons could be used or a combination of colors. As for me I love the white.

      What a cute idea. I remember my mother always had a can filled with so many different buttons. She would take them off clothing that was worn out. I used to love to go through them as a kid. I wish I had that can now. Thanks for this great hub.
