If there is one thing I love about being crafty, it is inspiring someone else. In this instance, it was my mom. She bought this fun little tree at a craft show of some sort for something ridiculous like $3. She had seen some others "dressed up" with lots of buttons and decided to do something similar. So here is the barebones tree with nothing but these awesome primitive-style lights.
I have probably mention this before, but I have a TON and I mean TON (life time worth maybe) of buttons. Because I am so blessed, I brought a large jar to my mom's house and allowed her to pick as many as she wanted ot decorate her cute little tree. We sat for quite a while for her to do this and when she had all her buttons, I sadly had to go home, but the next week got to see what an awesome job she did. She did pick up some additional snowflake buttons that I think really added to the tree. So overall, super inexpensive craft project!! (by the way, it was the trip that she went to get the snowflake buttons that she/we became obsessed with the idea of the burlap wreaths!!
I hope you enjoyed my mom's fun button tree project- I know I just adore it and wish I had one for my house!!! I do have a small tree so it may get a little facelift this year, we will see what time allows.
What unique things do you decorate your tree (big or small) with??
