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!
