diy vintage summer fabric flower wreath

my front door has been looking a little bare.  so i finally had some energy to get crafty and put a little something in the works.  i had all of this stuff just laying around.

i started with a wreath i got at the dollar store and some plain white fabric.  i tore the fabric in strips and simply wrapped it around the wreath.  When i was done i pinned it in the back.

i then cut circles out of some summery vintage fabric laying around the house.  they don't have to be perfect, you will bunch the fabric while you sew on buttons.

i then picked out some vintage buttons out of a sack of buttons my grandmother gave me.  any button will do!

as i sewed the buttons on i bunched the fabric underneath to create a flowery look.

after done i sewed them onto the wreath.  this is the end result!

i hung it on my front door, however i did not post the picture.  the wreath i used was too small for the door.  sigh........

small oversight on my part but still a cute looking wreath!
