Lazy Days of Summer

Hi crafters!

Yay, color! This background is so much more me! It reminds me of lying in the grass and watching the clouds go by. Look, there's a rabbit--no, now it's an airplane--hmm, changed again, and now it's a ...I don't know, what do you think it is? I love those easy relaxed days of summer. I hope you're finding some time to relax and just cloud gaze!

Here's a craft that goes right along with a summery attitude. This plant poke will add just the right touch to the pot of flowers that you're giving to a friend. I designed this craft for Amate Studios.

Button Plant Poke


Diamond Square Pendant in color of your choice (PN-008A)
Green pom poms or green yarn
Assortment of garden buttons
1 ft. green 16-gauge wire or other hanger
Jump ring


Hot glue and glue gun
Wire cutters, round nose pliers

1. Cut pom poms in half and glue into pendant tray. Or, cut yarn into small pieces and glue into tray.
2. Arrange buttons as desired and glue into tray over yarn.
3. To make the wire hanger, bend one end of the wire around a glue bottle to make a hook. Bend the end of the hook up around a pen. Curl the end into a loop with round nose pliers.
4. Open a jump ring and attach the pendant to the hanger. Close the jump ring. If desired, a jump ring can be made from the hanger wire.

With so many fun buttons available, you can personalize this craft easily!
Happy crafting!
