  • Button Christmas Tree Decorations

    These simple to make decorations will give your little ones plenty to do over the break this Christmas time.

    You can use any old buttons you can find but green and brown are a good combination.
    Then you only need some floristry or binding wire.

    Thread three or four small buttons to make the base by looping the wire in a U shape. Then start with a large button for the base of the tree and work up with small buttons changing colours as you go until you have a nice tree shape.

    You can then add a star shape button to the top and give it a few twists to hold the buttons in place.
    Then make a small loop and cut to size to hang from the tree.
