Button Christmas Tree-Monday's Cup of Creativity

I saw this idea in Crafts N Things magazine and decided to make one for my Mom because she loves buttons. I chose multi-colored pins because my mom loves trees with multi-colored lights. I love how it turned out! I was tempted to keep it!


It's very simple to do! All you do is attach buttons to a Styrofoam cone with pearl-headed pins. On top, I left the pin sticking up a bit and tied the ribbon around it.And that is it! All materials can be found at a craft store, though I did get the buttons very cheap in the dollar section of Michael's.

I am making another one for myself in non-traditional colors, as part of a tree trio I am doing. SO, as soon as I have all three done I will show you!

Delightfully Creating,
