As we all know, fresh flowers can instantly brighten a room. I would love to have fresh flowers in every room of my home, but since that can get expensive I often use handmade flowers instead. Handmade flowers can bring a pop of color and visual interest to a room and unlike real flowers have a long “shelf life.”
Today, I’ll show you how to make a bouquet of fabric poppies using vintage buttons. These poppies were inspired by my grandmother’s collection of brown vintage buttons that my mom gave to me. The designs on the buttons remind me of the centers of poppies. My goal was to create a project to display and highlight the beauty of the buttons.
