I’ve seen many bouquets made from buttons. I liked the look of them, but wanted a flower bouquet, so I decided to use the button theme for pomanders. I’ll be making one to hang on ribbons from each pew (25 altogether). I’ve made six so far.
I’ve taken large shatter-proof christmas ball ornaments and hot glued the buttons on them in stacks and various patterns. Each one is unique, and I’m loving them so far.
These photos show how they’re looking. I haven’t picked out the ribbon yet to hang them

I think they’re about 8 inches in circumference.
I’ve been finding buttons and charms at thrift stores, garage sales, and craft stores. I’ve also bought some on ebay. I’m trying to get the cheapest ones I can get that are still neat looking. All of my friends, family members, and coworkers are hunting them down for me too.

Well, since you’ve posted them, I’m assuming you’re open for opinions? I’m sorry but I think it’s one of the strangest looking ideas I’ve ever seem for a wedding.

I think you should use some sort of white satin ribbon or rope (to hang) to make them more wedding-like for the church….. but unique idea… perhaps you could incorporate some buttons onto the bouts or somewhere on the bouquets like around the ribbons that wrap the stems. This would tie the idea into other parts of your wedding.
