    I'd like to do something with my collection of buttons. Has anyone made a wreath? Maybe on a vintage doily?

    I seen one on a site one time. Can't remember where...I didn't bookmark it. They used cardboard in a wreath shape and painted it white. Then they hot glued all the buttons on it. I thought it looked cute.

    I keep saying I should do something with my button collection also.
    Martha Stewart has lots of crafts with buttons and I think you can find
    a few here. :wink:

    I love my old buttons, I couldn't part with them that way. But I might buy new ones to glue on a wreath base.

    What about wrapping a foam wreath in fabric and then adding buttons and maybe other sewing items. You could hang it in your sewing room.
