Check out the cool ornaments made from buttons from my vintage button jar. I just used a long piece of wire twisted through the large middle button the thread on a row of buttons. All eight rows are attached to the large middle button. An extra piece of wire makes a hanger for the top.
If you don't have vintage buttons, this one was made with all red buttons from the dollar store. The heart in the centre is just a decorative "brad".
I thought these would be a great topper for Christmas presents!
Here is another one that I just found on another blog. Her technique is totally different (glue instead of wire) and if you'd like to see how she does it, go here: http://shanty2chic.blogspot.com/2009/11/ashleys-snowflake-ornament.html
