Button Heart

I had seen button hearts similar to this when out and about and thought it would be the perfect way to show off some of my much treasured inherited buttons.




It was really simple to make with thin coated wire simply threaded through the buttons and then shaped. The hanging ribbon at the top is just looped through the wire at the back.

It is now hanging on the bathroom door in our house and makes me smile each time I see it.

I like it. I just won a load of buttons from Incy Wincy Stitches and have a load that I inherited from my granny. Would be a good way to use them.

You did really well. I tried and broke my wire before I could get to the end.
