Vintage Button Bouquet

Since I have collected so many wonderful buttons by now, I've been trying to figure out how to make a button bouquet so I could enjoy seeing them more in my creative space.



I had written about some that inspired me when I saw them in an antique shop (here).


I decided that I needed some repetition of buttons in my bouquet.


I wrapped each stem individually with floral tape and attached them together again with the tape so I could easily arrange them in the vase. 


When Ashleigh was over the other day, she said she loved what I have done with this area in my creative space. That meant so much to me!


Have you made a button bouquet?

  2. No I haven't ever tried, but I have a lovely collection of buttons that would suit such a pretty arrangement. It will go on my 'someday' list.

    No, have never made one myself. My "to do" list is already so long I hesitate to add anything else. LOL
    Enjoy your evening.

  10. I like the idea of repetition in your button bouquets.

    And that reminds me that I haven't sent off your package. I will try to get to it today, but the sun is shining and calling me to the garden.

  11. Nice idea. Reminds me of a friend whose daughter used vintage broaches to make a bouquet for her wedding in England a couple of years ago. Kathy spent a year or so collecting broaches from antique shops and flea markets wherever she traveled in the world. Pretty cool! Have a great week. Tammy

  17. Hello Patty,
    I saw your blog on Nana Diana's blog. What a clever idea this button bouquet is. I love the last picture with all the vintage goodies, as I love vintage stuff myself. You have many creative ideas on here, and your pictures are soft and pretty. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. It's so nice to meet new friends, especially from different states. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
