Bright Button Flowers
 

Materials:

  • Buttons - 5 Assorted sizes & colors (mine are from Blumenthal Lansing Buttons)
  • Wooden skewer sticks (stems)
  • Embroidery floss - approximately 10” for each flower
  • Glue (I’ve used Aleene’s Tacky Glue)
  • Fabric (tear into strips approximately 5/8” wide x 18” long) for covering wood skewer
  • Ribbon (for stem) 1/2” x 10”

Directions:

  1. Snip a small cut 5/8” from the edge of fabric with scissors.

  5. Place about 1/2” of the end of the fabric strip into the glue.

  8. Place a small amount of glue on each end of the embroidery floss and twist end with fingers. Let glue dry. When glue is dried, the dried glue on the end of the floss will be the ‘needle’ to go through the buttons holes.

  9. Stack the buttons, with the smallest on top. Put the embroidery floss ’needle’ through hole in top of smallest button, continue to push floss end through hole in each button.

  12. Turn the buttons over, carefully pull the floss ‘loop’ up, so that the fabric covered skewer can be inserted under floss. Place glue onto button, and place wooden skewer into glue and under embroidery loop.

  13. Carefully turn button flower over, and pull the embroidery floss tight and tie into knot. Cut off excess floss leaving approximately 1/4 - 3/8" tails on floss.
