Cute-as-a-Button Christmas Wreath

Make this Christmas wreath door hanging with lots of buttons for a pretty holiday entrance.

What You Need:

  • 14x14-inch square of cotton batting
  • 14x14-inch square of green fabric
  • Assorted white buttons
  • Glue stick
  • 7/8 yard of 1-1/2-inch-wide wire-edge ribbon
  • Purchased mounting board and frame

How to Make It:

  1. Lay the green fabric, right side up, on top of the batting. Cut a 4-inch-diameter circle of tracing paper and pin it, centered, on the fabric.
  2. Arrange buttons around the circle until the wreath measures 10 inches in diameter; tack the buttons in place with a glue stick.
  3. When you're pleased with the arrangement, sew the buttons in place and add a ribbon bow. Secure the design to a mounting board and insert it in a frame.
