button flowers in mason jar vase

I have seen these adorable button flowers on Pinterest lately. You know how much I love buttons, so of course this was a natural fit for a weekend project. All you have to do is get some picture hanging wire and thread it up through the bottom of the buttons and down through the top. Hold the wire in one hand and twist the buttons with the other hand so that the two ends of the wire twist together. Keep going until it’s twisted all the way to the bottom of the stem. It’s okay if it’s not perfectly straight, and in fact, it looks better if it’s not straight. You will probably end up bending the wire anyway.

I decided to use a canning jar as the vase. Canning jars make me smile, so it seemed like a good fit with the happy button flowers. Once I had all the flowers created, I held them together and bent them the way I wanted them to make the bouquet. Once they looked right, I wrapped a small piece of picture hanging wire around the base of the flowers to hold them in place. I put them in the mason jar, then added some green ribbon to hide the stems, and tied a pink ribbon around the top of the jar to finish it off. What do you think?
