Christmas Button Garland

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: time for some Christmas decorating! This Christmas Button Garland is a simple project that you can create while curled-up watching your favorite holiday movies. You just need some wired twine or narrow ribbon and a lot of buttons that match your Christmas decorations. The wired twine is great if you have rustic Christmas decorations. The wire also allows you to wrap sections of the garland around tree branches to hold the garland in place.

Christmas Button Garland Materials

These garlands work best when you create them in shorter sections, about 18 inches each. Cut the ribbon or wired twine into 18 inch pieces. At one end, twist the twine or knot the ribbon to create a loop that you can use for hanging. This also prevents the buttons from sliding off the end.

Christmas Button Garland Step 1

Start threading the buttons onto the twine or ribbon. If you are using ribbon, thread the ribbon through the needle first, then add the buttons. Try stacking the buttons to change up the color order. The buttons will spin on the ribbon due to the weight once you hang the garland.

As you approach the end with the buttons, leave a few inches to create another loop. You can hook the loops together to create a longer length of garland.
