28 Lilac Lane Blog Hop: Spring Flowers

Welcome to the 28 Lilac Lane blog hop on the Buttons Galore blog! Let’s make some spring flowers! Make sure that you stay until the end today for the giveaway!


Spring has us all thinking of flowers! But in some areas they aren’t blooming yet, or we may not be able to have them in the house due to allergies.

The solution is simple…fabric and buttons! 28 Lilac Lane spring flowers

This project starts with fabric and interfacing. Iron heavy-duty iron-on interfacing to the back side of a small fabric scrap. Then, wrong sides together, iron another fabric scrap to the back side of it. This will create a double-sided piece of fabric, with the interfacing in the middle to stiffen the fabric.

Run the fabric through your die cutting machine to make flowers. Repeat with several different fabric scraps. If you don’t have scraps that will work for this project, visit your local quilt or sewing store and check out their fat quarter inventory for suitable fabric. Small prints work best for this project.

Fabric Flowers

Select a large button to coordinate with each of your spring flowers. With a piercer or large needle, poke holes through the flower where the button’s holes are.

Cut a length of the German Style wire about twice the desired stem length and fold it in half. Poke one end through each of the button’s holes and the flower and pull to snug the loop down on top of the button. Begin twisting the wire together under the flower. Continue until you reach the desired stem length and clip off the wire ends.

Arrange your spring flowers in a vase, and for the finishing touch wrap baker’s twine around the neck and tie a pretty bow!

Top 7 Button Projects for Spring – and a Giveaway!

Top Spring Button Projects

Old man winter has been really reluctant in some parts of the country (including at the Buttons Galore warehouse) to pack it up and head back to the arctic where he belongs! So today we thought we’d share on the blog a round-up of some of our favorite spring projects to remind everyone that spring is coming after all!

Spring Button Wreath

This fun project will brighten up any decor and bring the cheer of spring inside – even if Mother Nature isn’t cooperating outside. And the only tool required is a glue gun!

Springtime Flutterbug Medley Wall Plaque

Welcome Spring Sign

This sign says it all for those who are ready to be done with winter…”welcome spring”. This light and airy look can be made in a variety of spring colors, or the text could be changed out with a child’s name for nursery decor too!

Upcycled Spring Floral Bouquet

When there is no flowers outside yet, just make your own! This spring project brings the spring cheer and is environmental too, as it upcycles a tin can for the beautiful container the holds the handmade flowers.

Homemade Button Garden Markers

Spring time means gardeners everywhere are dreaming of abundant summer garden harvests, and planting pots of seeds to get a head start on the growing season. These adorable garden markers will help you remember what that little green sprout in that pot is – peas? corn? beans? – before it makes its way out to be planted in the garden.

Spring Butterfly and Flower Card

Homemade Christmas Gifts

Welcome to our Homemade Christmas Gifts Holiday Blog Hop.

Holiday Blog Hop

Handmade Christmas gifts with buttons

We have some great holiday ideas using Buttons Galore and More Buttons and May Arts Ribbon. Hop with us to see homemade Christmas gifts such as, ornaments, decorating ideas and more!

If you are here for the regularly scheduled project from Laura Kelly, do not fear her project is still featured here.

From Laura:
How adorable is this rock? It is not any ordinary rock. It is a special holiday hand-painted and button embellished rock that we use to hold the door open.  It is a rock with a message and a purpose.

RockPainting homemade Christmas gifts RockFinal

I hand painted the tree on the big heavy rock with Americana paints by Deco-Art.  I love these paints because they are thick enough that when I paint on a rough surface with a slant they don’t run.  When it was dry, I used Glue Dots to add the buttons (Radical Red from my Laura Kelly collection with Buttons Galore).  Then I used a Sharpie marker and added a message to the back.

These rocks would be adorable in all sizes and shapes as door holders and spreaders of Christmas spirit.  I plan to paint a bunch of little ones with messages to hand out over the next few weeks at the Starbucks drive through and the bank and to people I meet while out on my daily adventures.  These are the messages I plan to use: Spread Cheer, Joy to the World, Follow the Star, Christmas is Love.
