I recently came across a fabulous Etsy seller called Fairyfolk, which inspired me to showcase a few unusual but frankly cool felt buttonholes. Now I’m the first to admit I’m a complete sucker for fresh, seasonal flowers, but these are enough to persuade me otherwise…
These fun and elegant woodland inspired buttonholes are handmade by Etsy seller Fairyfolk. I love how simple this idea is, but how stunning the result is – just three different coloured tiny ‘wool blooms’ and a pretty earthy brown ribbon.

These kite buttonholes were made by the bride and groom from felt, and I reckon for a crafty bride they wouldn’t be difficult to recreate. A little bit of stitching down the middle, and a kite tail made from a strand of wool. What a totally unique idea!
Hooray Pennant Brooch
Although listed as a brooch, I reckon these funky mini flags would double up as great buttonholes. Made by another Etsy seller called Chet and Dot, they have a tiny pin at the back to fasten them on and I just love the tiny ‘hooray’ stitched onto the flag. Again, another one that could be made by a craft bride or a friend nifty with a needle.
Is anyone going for a different or quirky buttonhole? Are you making them yourselves? Do get in contact or leave a comment as I would love to get some more ideas on alternatives to traditional floral buttonholes.
