After Christmas Sale

You all probably know about these little wreaths but I ran into three of them in an after-Christmas sale at an antique store. The best thing was that they were all made of very small, tiny buttons--rare to find and which I use often in my art. I had already put away the buttons from an all-red wreath and taken apart the multi-colored one before I realized I needed to take a picture of them for this blog. They were strung on floral wire twisted to hold them together in a wreath shape and then tied with a fabric strip hanger--very simple and cute. I'll make some next year only I won't sacrifice my smallest buttons to do so. I paid $2.00 a wreath.

I love the wreath just as it is. I am working on a button tree like you did. Just love yours. I've also done some button frames. They are on my blog. I just love buttons and have saved mine for years. A few years ago I just thought, why not use them so they can be enjoyed? But I still have lots in my jars. Thanks for such a wonderful blog.

What a find! I just love it when I find buttons at antique stores especially if they are on sale or under priced! Ü

It always amazes me at how creative people are.
Who would have thought to use buttons in that fashion?
Smart idea and smart shopping on your part.
Have a great day.

What a great idea! I've never seen wreaths made of buttons before! That would be such a cute idea to put on Christmas packages.
