What you need: 12-inch-diameter round-edge, round-back foam wreath form; brown ribbon; button fabric-covering kits; fabric; floral pins; hot-glue gun.

Here's how: Wind ribbon around foam to completely cover, hot-gluing at beginning and end of ribbon. Follow kit directions to cover each of the buttons with fabric. Slip a floral pin through the shank on the underside of each button; dab with hot glue to keep the pin stable. Cover the wreath with buttons, pushing some in closer to the form and leaving others sticking out to create more dimension.
