Craft Room – Button Flowers


Well it is almost Friday then it will be time for the weekend! In one of my previous craft room posts I mentioned I would share some of the projects I have completed for the sole purpose of decorating my room. Today I want to share with you an idea I grabbed from an issue of Creating Keepsakes.

To make the button flowers you will need two round styrofoam balls, tons of buttons, and straight pins. I used the decorative pearl tip pins to hold my buttons in place.

Once you have your supplies together start placing and layering buttons until the ball is completely covered except for a small section for your “stem”.

I then wrapped bamboo skewers with floral tape to make my stems. One end of the stem will go into your button flower while the other end will go into a piece of styrofoam in the pot to hold them in place. Tie a cute ribbon around the stem to make your leaves and it is as easy as that!

I did use dried moss in the top of the pot to cover the piece of styrofoam.
 




 

 
Here is another one I made by layering flowers and using brads, pins, and rhinestones to embellish.



















Happy Crafting!
