Button Flowers - A Tutorial

Are these not the cutest???
So super easy to make and a fantastic craft to do with the kids.

There are heaps of tutorials on how to make these little gems all over blog world - so why not add one more???

Here are said kids - ever so eager and excited to help mum....

Basically all you need are a selection of buttons, galvanized wire and scissors or pliers.

 Choose 3 buttons of different sizes (also works with 2 buttons)

Stack them....

Cut a piece of wire (double your desired length)

 Thread through one side of holes - loop and thread through the other side

Twist the wire to hold the buttons in place

 I chose to twist the wires all the way to the bottom (Im like that.....)


Then display however you like....

I stuck them in my mom's old vase just to take pictures but they so worked here and that's where they now live....


I spotted this tutorial originally on the jones design company blog

Hope you have had some inspiration today...

Take care
