Adorn your handmade-home this Christmas with charming little decorations made using buttons and wire. Make a simple wire button heart for a homely-haberdashery festive feel, or get arty with your designs (a bunch of mistletoe maybe or a delicate angel) to create some vintage-style chic.
The buttons come in a mix of styles and sizes in gorgeous fresh and festive shades of icy blue and white alongside red and green merry and bright. Make hearts, stars, trees and dainty garlands. Have fun creating simple stacking trees and maybe add jingle bells or beads to top and tail your button trees for extra jingle or sparkle. You could also add ribbon bows or hanging cords if you prefer. You can create your own designs or follow the ideas provided. With 250g (approx 750-800 buttons) and 10m of wire, you can create away! Why not use left over buttons to create your own Christmas card designs or gift tags?
Presented in an embossed jar, this kit makes a lovely present. Or you could make your own decorations as lovely handcrafted gifts.
