Flower Craft Idea: Button Bouquet (with free printable tags!)
Before I begin, I just want you to know that I am FULLY aware that Mother’s Day is TOMORROW and that this might be a little bit late for some of you over-acheivers who have had something for your mom picked out for months. HOWEVER, I am also fully aware that there might be some of you out there who roll like I do and are constantly scrambling at the last second. IF you are one of those types… I’ve got the perfect thing for you to make for your mom! It will take you a matter of minutes (maybe 15?) and your mom will be overjoyed that you “handmade” her something! We all know that handmade gifts trump store bought gifts so this will definitely secure your place as favorite child (this year).
Also, even if you planners already have something for your mom this holiday, pin this for her birthday! Or make it for any day she needs a little pick-me-up from her favorite child! I’ve also made tags so you can make this for a teacher or friend too! They are so fun to make, I figured you might want to make these year round. I wouldn’t blame you.
Here’s what you need:
- flowers (a bouquet or potted flowering plant– I got mine at the grocery store for about $6)
- 16 guage wire, cut into about 12″ pieces
- Tags (download HERE), printed, cut out and hole punched
- twine or ribbon
Stack your buttons, large to small, to create a “flower” effect. Thread your wire up through the holes and back through (as pictured above) leaving enough to be twisted and secured (as pictured below).
If you need your wire “stem” to be stronger, cut your wire pieces longer and thread it all the way through so it can be completely doubled coming back down through. Then twist the two pieces together all the way to the bottom.
Mothers are like buttons…they hold everything together.
Friends are like buttons…they hold everything together.
Teachers are like buttons…they hold everything together.
