La Petite, 7/8” White Buttons, 172500080
Lightweight Cardboard, 8 Inch square
7/8 Inch Wide Offray Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Place the cardboard on table and trace around a glass or bowl 6 inch outer circle and 3 inch inner circle to make wreath template. Carefully cut out the wreath template.
Start gluing your buttons in place to create the first layer. Next, glue down a second layer of buttons overlapping them so you don’t see the cardboard template underneath. Make sure to fill in all gaps and holes.
Finally take a 12 inch piece of ribbon and put one end through wreath and then thread both ends through the crystal slide. Glue the ends together or tie them to hang the wreath.
You can use the wreaths to hang on chair backs at a family gathering. Or hang them on hooks to decorate interior doors. We chose a neutral white color theme but you can get creative and use holiday colors instead. Create three different size wreaths and hang them one above the other, attaching them with additional ribbon for a different look. Or change the shape of the wreath – try a heart or a square.
This Sweet Button Wreath is an easy project for kids to create, just switch from hot glue to craft glue and throw something over your table to keep the mess to a minimum!
