    I saw this on another forums wedding section but it was a pink candy style. They look like a lot of hard work but worth the effort

    i loved the button bouquets so much, have spent the last wee while searching for a uk stockist!! no luck so far, but if you type into google 'button bouquet instructions' there is a few websites that show you how to make them - the one I found shows them displayed in a salt shaker - looks lovely and would be a really pretty table decoration to link in with your bouquets. the link is - http://whimsy-girl.blogspot.com/2008...-tutorial.html
    hope this helps.

    May I suggest some ideas?

    Ebay is great for getting random button assortments for cheap (buttons to buy individually or in pack in shops tend to be expensive) Often you can find them in one colour with a mix of button styles which might suit a bouquet nicely!

    I also recommend using wire to thread them then it means to can pose them how you want so they look like a bouquet!

    I'm going to use a combo of buttons and fabric scraps to make my bouquets!

    I did start making one of these but you needs loads and loads of buttons. I got a bit fed up after a while! A tip - wrap the wire in some floristry tape as it will make the "stems" look nicer.

    They do look lovely though and good luck with your crafting.

    They look fab! I have never seen one before - but it really looks amazing!

    I'm not sure I want one but I really want to 'play'! I might have a go at making some button buttonholes.
