I decided to post this in a separate thread for different reasons...

But here it is my button bouquet =)

Its made with pretty shell buttons I found at joannes (ON SALE...) and floral wire. the vase was bought at Cost Plus and I etched a line around it with some simple squares. Thanks for looking!!

It depends on how tight you twist the wire. If you don't mind it being a little bit loose it goes by fast. But I did mine a little bit tighter because it gives it more support. But it only took me about 30-45 minutes. I sat and watched tv while I did it.

I just used a thick floral wire from Michaels, I bet you could find something similar at home depot or ace hardware.  Here is a link for a tutorial...I can't take all the credit for these  Tongue

Don't get a wire that is too flimsy though, otherwise the stems will just flop over.
