Christmas Button Wreath

 I received craft materials to create my Christmas Button Wreath from Oriental Trading Company,  and I am delighted to be working in partnership with Oriental Trading Company to bring you today’s tutorial!  

Christmas is never complete in my house without a wreath, at least in my book.  When I told Mellow Man that the package that arrived on my doorstep from Oriental Trading company contained the materials to create a Christmas Button Wreath, he rolled his eyes.  However, I know that fellow crafters out there share my belief that one can never have too many wreaths at Christmas time.  We’ve used Oriental Trading Company at a number of school parties, and even for Vacation Bible School in the past, but I didn’t realize that they had such an awesome selection of crafting supplies.  When I found a giant bag of Christmas Buttons in the store, I knew that I needed to make a Christmas Button Wreath.

Do you love wreaths like I do? Using ribbon, beads and buttons from Oriental Trading Company I created this lovely Christmas Button Wreath that is a wonderful holiday decoration. Sponsored by Oriental Trading Company
