Button Wreaths And Button Crafts

Updated on July 10, 2014

A BUTTON WREATH OR BUTTON ORNAMENTS - SIMPLE AND BEAUTIFUL

Learning to make a button wreath or button ornament is so simple. These crafts are inexpensive, lots of fun and everyone in the family can help. There are projects geared for kids and others that need the attention of an adult.

For smaller children, you can give them big buttons to work with. They'll feel part of the action and will be able to handle the smaller ones. This can really spark creativity in the younger kids and motivate them to give it a try.

You can save buttons from old clothes (not my choice) or better yet purchase the sizes, colors and shapes you want to use. You'll be amazed at the types available. This is an easy craft that lets you express your artistic side.

A ROUND BUTTON ORNAMENT

THIS BUTTON ORNAMENT IS EASY TO MAKE

This is such a simple idea - round button ornament. You can really let your creativity go wild! Use a styrofoam ball, whatever size or sizes you choose, white ball head stick pins, and buttons that are appropriate for your theme or color scheme. Use various sizes of buttons, overlap and layer some of them to create your own unique ornament.

Use ribbon as the finishing touch and, of course, this gives you an opportunity to be creative - the fabric type and color of the ribbon should coordinate with your theme and button color scheme. The possibilities are endless!

Older kids can make these ornaments and we all know how creative younger minds can be when given the chance. This is a great project to stir up their imaginations and creativity. It can be a lot of fun as a family project.
