Whenever I’m at a flea market or yard sale I find myself constantly drawn to the jars of buttons. I think it’s the DIY slavedriver inside me that urges me to pick them up. Once they’re in my hands I just can’t put them down. I spy about 10 in the lot that I must have. Because I can’t leave my 10 buttons behind, I have to take the 190 others that are mingling with them.
I assume I am not the only buttonholic in the world, so today’s post is for you, fellow button lovers. I gathered some button inspiration for anyone looking for a cute decor idea for weddings, showers, or partys.
I am a sucker for untraditional wedding bouquets, something most of you already know. This button bouquet is no exception. How adorabley different. via SD Wedding Insider. If you would like to try making your own, check out M&J Trimming for a button bouquet tutorial.
