So I started working on my bouquet. Previously, I had decided that button bouquets are where it’s at. And after working on it, I can confirm that if you’re looking for an EASY DIY bouquet option, button bouquets are totally the way to go!!! I bought some floral wire (basically precut long straight pieces of wire) and some buttons and busted this out in about 15 minutes.
Am I done? Lord, no. And I hope it’s obvious that this is just me randomly grabbing the stems without any regard to how they’re bunched together. But I cannot believe this only took 15 minutes. And what is the total cost of what I’m holding in my hand? FIVE DOLLARS!
It looks a little plain to me right now, so I’m trying to decide what else to add (other than more buttons”¦this was just one package of them). I think I want a few fabric roses.

Maybe I could mix in some of those fabric roses with my buttons?
But given that my initial attempt has only cost me $5 and 15 minutes, I could also just totally change my mind. Part of me is really in love with some gorgeous fabric bouquets. They just look so much like real flowers”¦

Isn’t that one so dreamy?? But I’m not really sure if it’s my style. And I wonder if it would look good with brighter colored fabric”¦hmmmm”¦I may be headed out to get some fabric this weekend and see what I can pull together.
