I attended over the weekend a 3rd annual Mardi Gras party with many of our neighborhood friends. It's always a great time with lots of joking, catching up, amazing craw fish and let's say, some drinking.
I realized, with the blessed busyness lately, I wasn't able to go out and shop for Mardi Gras accessory items so, I had to improvise. This holiday has as staple of three basic colors, Purple, Yellow and Green...what could I possible have, that would be quick to whip together...BUTTONS.
I headed to my office and began sifting through my many bags of buttons. I then decided to sew them, by hand, to a piece of yellow ribbon; another always-have-on-hand, ribbon.
Below are images of the project. Please use it to inspire you for just about any holiday or gathering. These could make great party favors for a little girls party too.
Ribbon, any width will do
I didn't take very many pictures of sewing on each button but here's the finished product.
Here's a backside view of the buttons sewn onto the ribbon.
I'm a big lover of Fray Check, I use it on a lot of things. I used it to clean up where I cut my ribbon.
The possibilities are endless...I think I'll be making one for Independence Day, once it gets closer.
