I love this so much.
The thumbnail to your project kept popping up and knowing I could relate somehow kept me from clicking and reading the whole thing.
I sit here, crying happy tears, sad tears... I'm not quite sure.
This is such a moving project, so beautifully made.

Well done to you for finding such a creative way, to remember someone that was so close to you.

This is such a beautiful and touching way to remember your grandma.  My great grandma lived through the depression and would take off the lace and buttons from the clothes that were no longer worth keeping.  She kept everything!  My mom now has a box of trim and a box of buttons that I rifle through.  This was such a wonderful idea that I made my mom one of these for Christmas.  Thank you so much for sharing your story and posting this lovely idea!

My grandmother passed in December. She had an eclectic collection of buttons, nothing beautiful or elegant, but a cast variety. I was searching for a way to use the buttons to make something to remember her by, when i came across your wreath! It is beautiful, and if you don't mind, i may steal the idea for my button collection! Thank you so much for the wonderful idea!
