Button Christmas Wreath


I love buttons.
New buttons, old buttons, vintage buttons, colorful buttons ...
I've never met a button I didn't love.
Even the plain & simple ones serve a purpose.

There's a good 10 {or 57} of these type projects featured on blogs & on Pinterest, to be sure, 
but hey, what's another one to add to the mix, right?

Here's my take on a Button Wreath in a Distressed Shabby Frame.
{Did you know you can distress old frames by using a bar of soap? 
Click HERE to see just how easy it is!}




OK -- this is so simple it really needs no instruction, but here's what I did:

After taking apart the frame, I covered the original painting{a Goodwill find that cost a couple bucks}
with a green piece of material.
I stretched it securely & hot glued it on the back.



Now to the fun part ... picking out all the buttons!


It's really trial & error here until you find the look that suits you.
{I thought about framing it out with burlap, but decided against it.
That's why the burlap is laying on each side -- just seeing how it would look.}


I think it's finally just how I want it.
Now for hot gluing them on -- just remove a few at a time, put down a bit of hot glue
& stick them back where you had them.


And to finish it off ...a little shabby bow on top!


I made this for a sweet friend who loves buttons just as much as I do.
I only wish I had made another one for myself ;)

~Merry Christmas from Call Her Blessed~
