To help beat the cabin fever that has been settling in, I ran out to the store and picked up a houseplant, and I don’t know if it was the weather affecting me or what, but I thought this cute little ivy could use some color … so I made colorful button flowers to brighten it up.
Now it looks fun and festive instead of ho-hum and ordinary.
Let me tell you, these colorful button flowers are super easy to make!
This is what she used to look like … pretty and healthy, but nothing to write home about.
To make the button flowers, cut a strip of 26 gauge florist wire and thread it up through one hole of stacked buttons. Bend the wire over and feed it back down the other hole.
Pull the wire taut, and then twist it underneath the bottom button.
Simply stick the button flower’s wire stem into the pot and bend as needed.
I also dressed the pot in decorative scrapbook paper, and tied a rope bow around it.
You can find colorful buttons in a craft or fabric store … or at your local thrift shop.
Making button flowers is a fun and easy project and a quick way to add color in your home!
