Vintage Button and Bauble Bouquet

After receiving a request for vintage buttons and baubles on Etsy for a customer creating a wedding bouquet, I got curious about how one might go about making such an arrangement. I didn't have very many pretty vintage jewelry pieces or buttons left after listing my favorite stash items, so I decided to create my own baubles by stringing and stacking plain vintage buttons, adding beads, and glittering heavily in a pink and green color scheme. I attached them to paper-wrapped floral wire (next time I will definitely use a heavier gauge wire as the heavy pieces create drooping when the bouquet is upright) and tied the steams in a vintage hanky.

Very cute idea Aimee! My advice - use strong wire for the steams :)
