DIY Billy Buttons

These little flowers are so adorable, it kills me.

I can’t remember where I first saw them, but it’s been quite a while since they’ve been on my GIMME list. The only thing is, I’ve never seen them for sale anywhere in my town and I don’t really feel like spending a crap ton on them online… they’re freaking expensive!

Lucky me, as I was making my weekly craft store run I happened upon some little bags of little yellow ball things that look pretty similar. My sister in law was with me and I’m pretty sure she thought I was a mental case by the way I snatched them from the display, said MINE! and started petting them. (only slightly kidding.)

They didn’t have any stems, so I used some wooden skewers and improvised.

Not bad for $3, right? My night stand is much more cheery now.

You can find them at Joann’s… that is, unless you live here in Fresno where I already bought them all… MINE!

  4. Amanda, you can get them at Joann’s. They’re just a floral filler in the fake flower section. They also have red and green. :)
