Weekend DIY: Button Christmas Tree
It’s time to clean out the bottom of that old sewing box. This year we’ve run across some great ways to repurpose those old buttons. At the top of our list? A button Christmas tree that can be used as a centerpiece or unique gift.
This holiday craft is easy to make and inexpensive as well. Even the older kids can get in on the action and create a one-of-a-kind tree for their rooms.
The instructions are simple. Use a styrofoam cone (which you can find at most any craft store), straight pins (preferably ball-headed ones) and vintage buttons. Just use the pins to hold the buttons in place. You can also use trinkets, vintage jewelry and ribbons as embellishments.
The total cost is just $3 to $10, depending on the size cone you want to use. Quite inexpensive for a piece of decor that will last for years to come.
Plan on making a button tree this year? We’d love to see your finished project!
