DIY Christmas Craft #12

Whether you use an assortments of similar colors, festive colors or just a bunch of left over buttons from your sewing box, these little ornaments will look creative and cute! Here's what you need:
  • needle nose pliers or wire cutters
  • buttons, 72 pieces or more per ornament
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • 9" pieces of wire, Martha suggests 16-gauge copper or 22-gauge floral wire, but if it were me, I would use twine!
Start by making a small loop at one end. Then, start threading on your buttons until your create a wreathe about 2-1/2" round. Use your pliers to bend the plain end of wire around the looped end. With your ribbon, secure your bow and you're ready for hanging.
