Button Garland

No Jill and I didn't try this, I was ready and waiting for her to post JUNKLE BELLS and to my surprise she had a garland project too!!

All you need for mine is buttons and 24 guage wire. I choose white buttons cause I have alot of them, but any color would be fine.

First I cut a bunch of the wire about 6 to 8 inches long.

Then you thread the one end throught a hole and bend it to go back down the other hole.

And twist the end around the other wire.

I did all the ones that I had the wire cut.

Then to make the garland I just lokked for a good place and twisted it around another button wire.

Then folded the wire up and added another button on the other end of the wire.

And continued this till you get as long of a piece of garland as you need.

But, you don't have to use it on your tree add it to anything, it tucks in any nook and cranny!

Since I had a tree still hangin around I added it to it!

Need a Pencil ?

I was inspired by Jenny Kompolt from Junk Market Style web site with her "Got a pencil??" post http://www.junkmarketstyle.com/item/3522/got-a-pencil

I had most of the pencils laying in a drawer at home but didn't have enough so I got some from my Mom.
Hot glued them to a back of a paint stirring stick, I added the wire to hang it with first and had to cut off the end of the stick cause I didn't want to find more pencils!

I added a Smiley Pin, I wanted it so if I find another button or pin I could change it out so I glued a magnet to the pencils and to the pin back. So now I can change it or if I want to wear the pin!

Have A Nice Day!
