Make a striking flower arrangement by displaying buttons en masse in a vase. The buttons create an eye-catching vision of a rippling pool of baubles.
You'll need a large glass vase, a narrower vase that fits inside it, and enough buttons to fill the space between them. (Pictured is mother-of-pearl buttons.)
Fill the bottom of the large vase with buttons, and place the second vessel on top. Add more buttons, filling the space between the vases.Fill the smaller vessel with water, and arrange flowers inside.
Don't have hundreds of buttons laying around? This works great with small crystals, colored sand, small pebbles and shells. Because you aren't filling a large vase you save on both the filled and the flowers!
