Buttons and Lapel Pins
Step 1: Step 1: Attach Buttons and Pins to Ribbon
With your button collection handy, attach them to the length of ribbon. To easily center them, pinch the ribbon in half and slide button pin through. Vary by size, shape, theme or color.

Step 2: Step 2: Attach Ribbon to Wall
Tack the top and bottom portions to a wall, window frame, or anywhere else you see fit.
