DIY Fast and easy button flowers….

Hey Everyone! I’m Jennifer Zuri from Town and Country Living. Has it been a month already since I last shared a project here at Jennifer’s blog? Time flies while we’re enjoying this polar vortex here in Illinois. To help beat the cabin fever that was settling in, I ran out to the store and picked up a houseplant, and I don’t know if it was the weather affecting me or what, but I thought the cute little ivy could use some color … so I made colorful button flowers to brighten it up.

Ivy HouseplantThis is what she used to look like … pretty and healthy, but nothing to write home about.

How to make button flowers via Town and Country LivingIt’s so easy to make these little button flowers. Cut a strip of 26 gauge florist wire and thread it up through one hole of stacked buttons, and then back down the other hole.

Simply stick the wire stem into the pot and bend as needed.
