Button Votive Holder

Hi, friends!  I’m excited to share this week’s button project with you!  I was looking for something fun and festive I could use for my Easter table, and came up with this cute votive holder.  You could do the same thing for a vase, a pencil holder, or anything you wanted!  Take a look…

Materials:
- assorted buttons
- wire {26 gauge or thinner}
- glass votive holder or vase
The specific buttons I chose for this project were:
- “Wilburn” {5, 12 mm}
- “Charmain” {5, 11 mm}
- “Carlos” {5, 15 mm}
This project was incredibly simple!  All I did was choose a pattern and thread my buttons onto the wire.  I threaded the wire up from the bottom through the left hole, went down through the right, and repeated until all fifteen buttons were on the wire.  Make sure you measure the circumference of your votive holder or vase first, so you know how many buttons to use and can adjust your pattern accordingly.
When I was done stringing the buttons, I twisted the wire ends together, trimmed them, and tucked them behind a large “Carlos” button.  Then, I slid the button ring down over the votive holder until it stopped.
I love how decorative this is and how it adds a fun touch of color to something very ordinary.  Plus, since the button ring is not permanently attached to the glass, I can remove it and replace it whenever I want!  I can use fall colors, holiday buttons…the possibilities are endless!  These would make pretty additions to wedding tables too, done in the bride’s selected colors. 
I absolutely love these particular buttons; as soon as I saw them on the website, I had to have them!  The colors are fantastic, and the patterns are so much fun!  What about you?  What colors and patterns would you use?
