Everyone needs a wreath for the holiday season, so why not a button wreath?! This little wreath is quick and easy to make and requires very few tools.
Here is what you will need:
DecoArt Americana: Antique White #13058 and Santa Red #13170
Surface: 6” x 6” Lathe Wood Pallet Box #63105
Accessories: Folk Christmas Buttons #82222, Circle Stencil #70843, Acrylic Sealer Finisher Matte Spray #70836, Glue Gun &73004, Ribbon of your choice
Paint the front of your box Antique White and the sides Santa Red. This may take multiple coats to achieve the opacity that you want. When the paint is dry spray with varnish. Using your circle stencil and a pencil, lightly draw the circle size that you would prefer. This is just a guide for your button placement. Open your bag of buttons and pull out all the green ones and begin laying them around your circle making sure to intermix the large ones and other sizes all around the circle, this is where you will add interest to your wreath. Once you are happy with the placement, start gluing the buttons down one at a time. When all the green ones are in place, then pick a few white buttons and lay them around the wreath along with a few red ones. Again, when you are happy with the placement, glue them in place. Add a ribbon at the top and your wreath is finished!
A fun and easy project for anyone!
