Button Wreath Ornament

Hello Blissful and Domestic Readers!  It's Kelly from Here Comes the Sun.  I'm back this month to share an easy Christmas craft with you.  This is perfect for the little ones in your life.


Materials

Red and green buttons in a variety of sizes
Floral wire
Red felt
Glue gun

Directions

Cut your floral wire into a length that will make a circle paproximately 2 inches in diameter.

Make a loop at one end of the floral wire (this is so the buttons will not fall off while you thread them)

Thread the buttons onto the wire.  My kids had a blast doing this.  My daughter just HAD to have hers in a red, green, red, green pattern. She is VERY into patterns these days.  My son just put them on every which way!


Leave a bit of wire at the end and twist the two ends together to form a circle.


Wrap a piece of red felt around the wire and adhere the ends together with glue.  You could use ribbon for this step too.  I went looking for red ribbon and didn't have any in my stash so I used red felt leftover from my felt ribbon candy.  I think the felt gives it a more luxurious look than ribbon would.


Hang your ornament on the tree front and center.


I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

Thanks so much for having me today, Danielle.  I love contributing to your blog!
