Button Flowers

This is an alternative to the craft I did with my daughter much earlier. We had intended to make these flowers for her teachers but the shop selling the bells had ran out of bells.


So I used buttons instead of bells. We gave each teacher 2 flowers of Bell and Button Flowers in a stalk each. It looked a lot more nicer.

I'm repeating the instructions here for easy reference.

Materials needed:

  • Cardboard Paper (We used index card)
  • Pipe Cleaner/Wire (We used wire)
  • Button
  • Colouring Medium (We used colour pens)

How to do it:
  1. Draw the outline of a flower on the cardboard.
  2. Cut out the flower.
  3. Colour the flower.
  4. Use a pencil to poke 2 small holes in the center of the flower.
  5. Fold the wire into half.
  6. Thread the wire through the holes of the button and through the holes on the paper.
  7. The button should be in the middle of the pipe cleaner.
  8. Twist the wire together.
  9. Bent the flower forward and it's done.
