Like so many other crafters I have a terrible weakness for buttons and ribbon. I have a big collection so wanted to use some up so I could buy more. Last christmas I made wire heart shapes decorated with buttons for my friends so decide to try the same but in a star shape!
I used the lovely citrus mix button bag I got from Sew Sweet and managed to make 2 stars from the 1 bag.
I made it by first making a star shape from some stiff metal. Then I hand sewed each button onto the metal frame which took forever! Then to secure each button I added some hot glue to the back of each button and finished with a ribbon loop so I could hand it up.
I am keeping one star on my window as it looks really pretty when the sun shines on the buttons, but the second star is listed for sale in my Etsy shop.
