Here is Jana @ Lola...Again bringing you an ornament that is cute as a button for our Grand Finale. Enjoy everyone and have a wonderful Holiday!



I am a total Christmas junkie!

We start decorating our house before Thanksgiving so
that we can enjoy the season longer.

I am so
excited to share one of my ornaments with you today. It is very quick
and easy to make!


The Button Wreath




You will need-

Craft Glue (I used jewel glue), or a hot glue
gun,

Ribbon for the hanger,
and Buttons!




Step one-
Trace a circle on some waxed paper.


Step 2- lay your bottom layer for the wreath.

Step 3- Start your second layer. Overlap the
two of your bottom layer buttons until all of the spaces are
covered.....




......like this.



Step 4- Keep layering buttons!


(don't worry! The glue dries clear!)

Step 5- Make another one....and another....


Step 6- If you used craft glue, let it dry!

Step 7- Tie it up with ribbon.





...and hang on the tree!!!



These are also great to tie onto the top of your packages!

Have a fantastic Christmas Season everyone!

Jana Nielson aka
Lola
