Upcycled Button Flowers in a Pot

I made this little creation last night. I have been making these button flowers for a while, but in stems, not in a "planted pot." I stopped at the craft supply store to get more stems to make some more bouquets, and these terracotta pots were next to the stems, along with the Spanish moss. I then pictured this lovely pot of button flowers and decided to go for it.

I was picturing a more evenly dispersed, full pot of button flowers in the pot, as well as the flowers making a perfectly round umbrella over the pot. I like it with all its imperfections, though, I think it looks very natural.

I was thinking I would sell this at my stand at BUiLDiNG CHARACTER, it would make a fabulous Valentine's Day gift, after all. But, I think that I love it. Lately I have been a lot better about not trying to keep everything I make, so maybe it's time for a little gift for myself....

A girl who works for me is obsessed with buttons, so I feel like I need to get one of these for her! What about one with a little smaller pot? I love the idea- it's fabulous!

I was actually thinking about a smaller one, in fact. I'll work on it!
Glad you like it, sometimes I get these ideas and am thinking that I am the only person who will like it!
