So many Christmas presents to make...


and this one is super easy and in my opinion TOTALLY cute!!! I got the idea of Ali Edward's blog ~ Ali is amazing!! (There is a link to her blog on the side bar!)

Anyways, it's a button tree. I bought two packs of buttons from Archiver's and mixed them together to make this. I used pearl topped pins (nope, that's not the "technical" name for them, lol) There are about 150 buttons and pins on this tiny lil tree. I was thinking about doing a three tree trio (say that three times fast), but will need a lot more buttons and a ton more pins, so I am going to reevaluate.

Now, what to do with the top of it...anyone have any brilliant ideas??

Wow! Keri that is way cool. I bet it is one heavy tree too. As to the top what about looking for a couple of star shaped buttons that you could glue back to back and place on the top.

Keri - this very cute! To top it, could you get the tiny spools of thread, in basic colors, and put on dowels in a star shape? If you added a thread cutter and needles, too, it would be very functional for the recipient - all necessities in one place!

Very cute idea! I have seen a couple of these on other blogs and they just left them plain on the top. They are all just fabulous!
