Make Button Flowers #1

buttonfeltflowerbouquet

I ran across this super cute craft while browsing the internet the other day and thought it would be super fun for people with memory Loss, so go check it out here!

People in the middle stages might need help with cutting or perhaps they could cut out shapes if they were traced for them. They will probably also need help getting the hang of the steps, but with you there to help and perhaps a sample finished product to look at, this could be a lot of fun! You can place your finished flowers in a vase like the author did, or maybe wire them to a barrette or pin to make a pretty broach. People with memory loss, just like the rest of us, love feeling as if they have something to contribute, so try introducing this activity as a way to make gifts for friends or family if the person is usually hesitant to do crafts.
