Button Tree

Here's another fun crafting project that I just finished today. I originally saw the idea here, which led me to this post that gives amazing instructions and an amazing photo of her tree. Go there if you really want to be inspired to make one. It took about 400+ buttons, 400+ pins and about 1.5 hours while watching tv. This is our only Christmas tree this year, small but I love it. And so does the husband.

I love it too...and the little button jar you put it in was the perfect touch.

If you're interested, Mary Englebreit has an advent calendar with buttons at

A smaller version with candy in it would be a great idea for a teacher's gift.

Very sweet! I LOVE buttons. I'll have to confiscate my Granny's button box & try this.
