Moms are like buttons, they hold everything together. Isn’t this the truth!? With Mother’s Day right around the corner, it was definitely time for a DIY Mother’s Day gift idea. It’s kind of a universal law that moms love flowers, right? Since I love this mom are like buttons quote, we’re going to make button flowers to add in to a cute potted plant for your mom. This button flowers tutorial is so simple and perfect project for the kiddos! I made a really cute (and FREE) moms are like buttons printable for Mother’s Day to go along with this Mother’s Day gift idea.
Another reason I’m really excited about today’s craft is because it is a part of the monthly craft room destash challenge! I love participating in this challenge every month. It encourages me to get creative and use the supplies I already have on hand. Not to mention, it helps clean up my craft room & office as I get rid of some of the craft stash! 🙂 Yes, today’s craft was make with 100% of materials that I had on hand. Ok…maybe I lied. I had to go buy the potted plant!

Supplies for button flowers:
- Paper flowers
- Floral wire
- Wire cutter
- Moms are like buttons printable (link is at the bottom of this post)
- Baker’s twine
- Potted plant
Step 1. Cut floral wire.
Cut your floral wire in pieces between 8 and 12 inches long. You’ll need one piece of wire for each button flower.
Step 2. Add your button to wire.
First you will string your button onto the wire and wrap about 2-3 inches through the button.
Step 3. Twist wire behind button to secure.
Next you can twist the wire behind the button a couple times to keep the button in place at the top of the wire.
Step 4. Add paper flower.
You will add the paper flower on to the wire behind the button. To secure the paper flower, you can wrap the wire around in a “C” shape on the bottom of the flower.
Step 5. Add button flowers to potted plant.
Place the button flowers at varying heights around the potted plant.
Step 6. Tie on “mothers are like buttons” tag.
Cut out the mothers are like buttons printable tag and tie it onto the potted plant using baker’s twine.
With this free mom are like buttons printable, you’ll be able to print 4 tags and 1 card. Since the printable is free, you can print as many as you need! Printable is for personal use only. 🙂
Moms really are like buttons, aren’t they? They are keeping us all together at the seams. They go unnoticed and unappreciated most days. So remember to spoil your mom this Mother’s Day! She deserves it.
