With Halloween quickly approaching and stores filled with candy, costumes and all other props for the season something tells me it’s time to get moving on getting our Halloween posts up!
Recently I created some fun whimsical button projects for Hancock Fabrics and wanted to share these with everyone. I’ve included in todays blog two quick instructions for the Black & White Button Wreath and Button Candy Corn- sometimes it’s the “INSPIRATION” that’s needed to get us motivated to light our fire!

So have I inspired you to try any of the above? Here are the materials you will need for each of the projects shown:

Completely wrap wreath with white yarn and secure with headpin in back. With black yarn – wrap approximate 2 inch wide sections and secure with headpin in back (you want to leave 2 1/2″ between each section. Glue buttons onto on half of wreath (refer to photo) begin with your larger buttons on bottom and layer as you go along. Add decorative buttons (cat face, stripe, dot buttons on top). Add tulle to other side of wreath and ribbon for hanging.
Button Candy Corn: this is truly an easy project to create and such a whimsical one too!
