Inspiration:

The Goodey Knot – Buttonniere

Supplies:

Buttons

Wire (I used 24 gauge green florist wire)

Wire Cutters

Glue

Green Excelsior

Clay Pot

1.  Arrange the buttons into flowers.  Cut wire for each flower.  I cut my lengths about 12″ long.

2.  Using the wire like thread, assemble your flowers.  Twist the wire together to create the stems.

3.  Arrange the flowers into a bouquet.  Twist the stems together.

4.  Trim the excess wire from the bottom.  Apply a generous amount of adhesive and glue the bouquet into the bottom of the clay pot.

5.  Add a little green excelsior or moss.  What a sweet little pot of flowers.  All ready for Spring!
