We’re having a little party at our house next week, fingers crossed the weather will be nice as we are hoping to have it in our garden. I love making my own decorations and have lot’s of lovely things I plan to make this week including table decorations pretty cake toppers and bunting. It’s a great chance to use some of the bit’s and bobs in my craft cupboard which I’ve been stashing away.
There’s going to be quite a few craft tutorials coming up on the blog as I’d love to share some of my makes, so you can have a go too. These would also be great ideas if your planning a home-made wedding and want a little inspiration.
So first up is a little button bouquet centre piece for each table. I’ve seen lot’s of gorgeous bridal bouquets made using buttons so I used this idea to create a cute little feature. These are so easy to make and my 8 year old daughter helped out making the button flowers.
You will need:
Lot’s of buttons – I used a mixture of new ones and vintage ones which I picked up at car boot sales.
Floristry wire and pliers
A metal plant pot
Floristry foam cut to fit in your pot
Step One: Cut your wire into 25cm lengths.
Step Two: Choose 2 or 3 buttons and arrange them into a stack.
Step Three: Thread your buttons on your piece of wire.
Step Four: Twist your wire securely and repeat into you have lot’s of button flowers.
Step Five: Place your foam into the pot and begin arranging your flowers inside.
Step Six: Keep going until you’ve filled your pot.
I love how bright and colourful these came out. If you have a colour scheme for your party or wedding why not use buttons to match.
I’ve managed to make two so far. But I’m planning to make 3 or 4. What do you think of this little make? Will you be giving this a try?
