Button Wreath Ornament

Button Wreath TutorialNeed some more ornaments or some super cute gift toppers?  These are so quick and easy to make!

Button Wreath TutorialMaterials and Tools:

  • Buttons!
  • 24 gauge wire.  (You can use whatever you like.  I just used some silver plated wire I had, but you could even use the wire from the gardening section of the craft store and it should work just fine.
  • Cord or ribbon, etc. to hang the ornament.
  • Wire cutters
  • Round nose pliers.
  • Chain nose pliers.

Step #1

Cut a piece of wire to your desired length.  If you want a bigger ornament, cut more, smaller less.  Add a few extra inches on each side to create the loop.  I cut mine about 10 inches long.

Step #2

Step #3

Button Wreath TutorialSlide a button putting one end of the wire in each hole.  Then bend the wire straight like shown.

Step #4

Button Wreath TutorialSlide another button on by putting the wire through one hole.

This is where it gets a little bit tricky.  Hold the button and then pull the wire through the other hole.  I tried using a larger gauge wire and it was kind of a nightmare (but possible).

Note:  Be careful pulling the wire through to make sure you don’t get any kinks in it while you’re pulling it through.  Also, hold onto the button so it doesn’t twist either.
