I grabbed a 12" styrofoam wreath form from my craft stash, and my buttons. I organized my buttons into colors first so I could see what I had to work with.
Create a Colorful DIY Button Wreath
I scored a large lot of buttons from my local thrift store, and since I've never made a button wreath I thought it was time I gave it a go.
Using my hot glue gun I started attaching white and cream buttons as a base for my colored buttons.
You could certainly do the whole thing in whites and creams if that's what you love, but I need color in my life so I kept on going.
TIP: Using a lazy susan for smaller projects like this makes it so easy to work on all sides.
Once I had my base I started adding colored buttons here and there, just doing it by eye really.
And here's my finished wreath. It's so fun and colorful.
To add a wintery touch I pinned a fun white glittery garland to the back of the wreath. This can easily be removed when I want a change. This is totally optional.
Now I'm not going to lie, this project took me a long time, because working with buttons with raised posts can be quite a challenge. I broke the time up over a few afternoons.
But I'm so pleased with the results. It's very bright and cheerful.
