Oh my gosh, I LOVE buttons and this is the best idea! How lovely. I might be tempted, as you say, to make one and put in a vase for home decor. I just love this idea.

Did it take you long to do? Are they centered around anything or just tied together with wire?

(And congratulations!  Grin)

Thank you! I wondered those same things myself and no where could I find a bridal bouquet tutorial so I just kept making the "flowers" until they felt to be the right heft or weight in my hand and then, holding them approximately how I wanted them I took one of the wires and wrapped it around the others... I then took a looooooooong black ribbon and starting from the top; wrapped it around the "stems" to the bottom and back up again (I ended up doing this twice to secure the feathers and glue I added as an afterthought).

The whole thing, including messing with the feathers and glue (I recommend perhaps having an extra set of hands for that part =nightmare *laughs*) I think took me maybe an hour (?). The most time consuming part of the endeavour was figuring out what buttons to use!

When you do make one, please alert me to some pics!!

I absolutely love it!

I have one tiny idea for you, the buttons that aren't capped with a shank button, you can find in the craft stores half pearls usually in the bridal section or maybe even in the scrap booking section now. Just to finish off the tops so they look as pretty as the rest of them. Other wise its perfect keepsake!

I love your outfit-specially the coat!

Thank you! Smiley

(And I know about the pearls... I specifically chose certain buttons to be "top pieces" as they would have become lost under the shank buttons. I'm particularly proud of my vintage button collection and didn't mind a few of the "flowers" showing some green wire in order to showcase those buttons specifically.)

I swear I must have actually squealed like a teenager when I saw the coat (not to mention when I tried it on and I was a size -smaller- than I had thought! Wink )

That is lovely!

I also really want to make a button and felt flower bouquet but while I do have a long term bf we've no plans to marry yet...so he might think I'm a bit nutty.   Smiley

What a beautiful bouquet. 

Thank you!!


The Hubs still jokes that he's glad I decided -against- tossing it after the ceremony.

Oy! That could have been painful!
