The 4th of July is right around the corner and I have a new glue gun, so I thought I’d combine the two and get my craft on.
A couple of months ago, I bought a stash of red, white, and blue buttons from Michaels. I’ve had these tucked away, waiting until I had enough time to do something with them. And then when I had the time, I couldn’t find them anywhere, because that is how I roll.
But once the buttons were back in my possession (found them in my box of crafting supplies, which further proves my theory that there’s no point in putting things away, ever, because they still get lost), I immediately put them to good use on this *super* easy DIY wreath.

- Wooden craft ring – I would use a smaller (12″) one next time, like I have for my other wreaths (see bottom of post for links to these, they’re AWESOME)
- Glue gun or crafting glue (I actually think the crafting glue might be easier – although there’s a longer dry time, it’s nice to be able to move the buttons around before they dry)
- Buttons (lots of them)
- Ribbon to hang with
- White paint (or whatever color you’d like to paint the ring)
And I have more easy DIY wreaths where this comes from. I know you won’t be making these now, but if you want to look at them for later – here’s my candy heart wreath and here is my candy corn wreath. I triple heart love both of these creations, and you can get an idea for how they look with the smaller craft ring.
