Curious about what I use all of those buttons for from my previous post?
I like to make button wreaths. They're a little labor intensive, but I don't mind sewing on buttons. I'm currently working on an all white one with mostly 'mother of pearl' buttons.
I try to overlap the buttons, until they completely cover the wreath. More is more. On the wreath below, I didn't sew buttons completely around to the back (like I did on the one above). It was such a big wreath, that I went into 'button preservation' mode...
Love the color and detail they add to a plain mirror. Plus, it gives me an excuse to acquire more buttons. Can you ever have too many buttons?
brightly colored buttons = happiness
Have a lovely weekend, my friends.
