Button Heart Ornaments

By: Kim of Yummy Cuppy Crafts

With Valentine's Day on everyone's mind now is the time to get creative and crafts. This tutorial comes to us from a very crafty lady. Button heart ornaments are adorable to decorate any room. Everyone has buttons in their craft stash, right? I have bags and bags of old buttons I’ve accumulated and have left over from previous craft projects. This was a great way to use some of them by making fun and festive Valentine Heart ornaments! Besides, I’m all about making use of what you already have around the house! As a mother of 4, this is a great activity to do with your kids.

Materials:

  • Buttons with at least 2 holes (red, pink, white)
  • Colored Wire (the thinner the better, but make sure it’s strong enough to hold shape)
  • Wire cutters
  • Ribbon

Instructions:

  1. Cut about 12 inches of wire.
     
  2. String the first button, leave about 1 inch of wire at the end for twisting the ends when you are done. Go through one hole until the button is in its final position, then string through the other hole. The button will not slide down the wire if you string it through both wires at the same time.


     
  3. Repeat step 2 until you have strung about 12 buttons. You can use all one color, or alternate colors, depending on the look you want. This will give you about a 3 inch tall heart ornament.


     
  4. Once you’ve strung all your buttons, bend into your heart shape. You can have your ends meet at the base of the heart or at the top, it’s up to you.


     
  5. Twist the two end wires together. If you have left over wire, you can swirl the ends at the bottom of the heart to make a fun design, or you can clip them and bend it under so it doesn’t poke anything.

     
     
  6. Take a piece of ribbon and tie a loop to the top of the heart for hanging.
