button wreath

Hello!  I have a very simple ornament to share with you today: A Button Wreath Ornament which I placed, once again, in an embroidery hoop.  And, when I say simple, I mean simple!

In fact, I’m not going to belabor this, or even offer up a tutorial.  I trust that if you are here, reading about little crafty projects, you know how to sew on a buttons–and there really isn’t much more to this project than that!

The materials for this project are really simple.  I used a 4″ embroidery hoop, white non-stretch material, green embroidery thread and lots of green buttons.  This is the perfect project for a button hoarder like me.  I really like working with buttons (check out this and this and this).

I placed the buttons around the edge of the hoop and stitched them down.  They I added a little red bow, and a ribbon on top to make it an ornament.  Easy.

But, sometimes the easiest things are the best.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your Thanksgiving prep is going well.  My family and I are embarking on an 18 hour drive to see my husband’s family…with two kids, ages 1 and 2.  Yeah, it is going to be interesting.  Thank goodness for the movie screen in the mini van.

All the best,
