Christmas tutorial advent – Button flower

You will need:

  • 5 – 6 small buttons
  • 1 large button
  • good quality glue for plastic and beads
  • brooch bar
  • small felt circle (any colour)
  1. Depending on the size of your large button compared to your small buttons you will need between 5 and 6 of the small buttons.
  2. Lay your small buttons down in a circle, right side facing upwards. Dab a dot of glue onto the back of the big button.
  3. Depending on your glue you may have to wait a few minutes for it to become tacky, but when its ready place your large button down on top, adjust the smaller buttons now if they aren’t perfect. Let the glue dry.
  4. When the glue is 100% dry turn your flower wrong side up and dab a bit of glue on your brooch pin and stick it onto the buttons.
  5. For an extra secure hold place a circle of felt over the top of the brooch pin, glueing it down to the buttons.
  6. Make sure the glue dries fully and its ready to pin to your bag, coat etc
