Get out the button box and get your Christmas tree craft on! You can make button ornaments, button garlands or little button trees that are super cute and super easy. Lots of kid-friendly activities here, too.
If you don’t have a button collection, check out thrift stores, creative reuse centers and flea markets for undiscovered treasures. And dollar stores often have bargain packages of brightly-colored buttons. Button up, Buttercup!
Just a few buttons? That’s okay. You can still make Cinnamon Stick Tree Ornaments to brighten your home. My local warehouse store sells cinnamon sticks in bulk around the holidays – maybe yours does, too! Add some artificial evergreen branches, twine for the hanger and glue on some buttons! A great project with children.
For the gardener in your life – make a button-covered Recycled Rake Tree like this one! The retired rake has already done the hard work – all you have to do is glue on the buttons. How cute would this be hanging on the front door to greet guests?
