Dreaming of Spring Button Wreath

Once the winter holidays have passed and the days are just plain cold, I start dreaming of spring and longing for green around my house. This year I’m adding a little early spring cheer with this mini button wreath. Bright, cheerful and fun, it’s a great afternoon project and could be altered to suit any color scheme or wreath size, just remember that the bigger the wreath, the more buttons you need.

Things you’ll need:
One 8-inch Styrofoam wreath form
Strips of felt squares
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Lots of buttons in shades of of your choice (look for color scheme button packs)

Things to do:
1. Attach the end of a felt strip to the underside of the wreath and wrap around the wreath, adding more strips of felt as needed, until the whole surface is covered.
2. Glue the buttons, one at a time, to the wreath. Make sure that you only use a small amount of glue so that it doesn’t seep through the holes of the buttons and create glue strings. Pack them as tightly as possible and try to keep the order of the buttons random.
3. Attach a ribbon loop to the back side of the wreath or hang directly on a nail.
