what to do with buttons


i originally saw this darling button wreath ornament here in martha stewart's little workshop. 

i loved it so much i had to make it myself and then i thought i would show you how to make it too! 

{i'm sure mine varies slightly from martha's masterpiece.} 


-pipe cleaners
-lots and lots of  buttons
-yarn or ribbon
-jute or twine or more ribbon

SOOOO CUTE, I don't have enough buttons though and most of mine are black or grey from buying work clothes :( I love it though, would be fun to do with Lydia in a couple years.
