Button Wreath Ornament

Use a variety of button colors and sizes to make each wreath unique!

Materials:
Needle-nose pliers or wire cutters
16-gauge copper wire, or 22-gauge green floral wire; cut to 9-inch lengths
72 buttons for each wreath
Scissors
Satin ribbon, 1/8 inch wide and 6 inches long
Seam binding or wired ribbon for decorative bow

Instructions:
1. Using pliers, make a small loop at one end of the wire.
2. Allow your child to thread buttons onto the wire until you have enough to form the size of the wreath you want. Our wreaths are 2 1/2 inches in diameter.
3. Using pliers, bend the plain end of the wire around the looped end. This will form the wreath.
4. Use the satin ribbon to make a loop for hanging the wreath; tie the ribbon in a knot about 3 inches above the wreath.
5. Tie a bow of seam binding or wired ribbon to decorate the wreath.
