Spring has sprung and things are warming up outside. Leaves are growing and flowers are blooming. For me, this signals that I need to brighten my house up a bit to shed off the gloomy conditions that winter can bring. That’s why I love little crafts like this super simple spring button bouquet. They’re super easy to make so even someone like me, who really doesn’t have a lot of time, can fit them in! If you adore buttons, this craft has your name on it! It’s perfect for home decor, a gift, or even for use in a wedding! It’s one of my favorite “little” crafts to make and my Emma loves it when we do them together.
The supplies for this one can easily be found around most homes, but if not, just swing by your local craft store or dollar store. Most of the ones that you wouldn’t have on hand can be found there. What makes this one so great is that it really is easy enough for kids of almost any age to do and it’s quick enough that it’s a great rainy day activity for them too. You can use any button color that you want. Emma likes to use orange and black ones each year to make them for Halloween and a red and green combo would be great for Christmas.
You will need:
- Buttons in the colors you’re using and different shapes
- Florist wire – try to get wires with a couple of different thickness
- Silk flowers and greenery
Start by stacking your buttons in whatever order you want them to be in for your bouquet. We make sure to use at least 4 buttons per “bloom” so that they stand out a bit better. Once you’ve got your buttons stacked, run the florists wire through the hole of the largest button first. Continue to stack your butons on the florists wire until your bloom is complete. Once it’s done, fold the wire over like shown above to finish it!
Repeat with as many blooms as you’d like and then use the tie you created (the overhanging florists wire) on each bloom to attach to your silk flowers!
