When we started getting out the Christmas decorations, I fell in love all over again with these button trees I made last year. I got the idea from Ali Edwards, but she must have spent a small fortune on buttons and corsage pins, because she covered the entire cone with buttons. SUPER cute idea but SUPER expensive. So I covered mine with scrapbook paper, it made it a much more thrifty project, and I really love how they look.
Its just styrofoam tree forms, buttons and colored straight pins. You can see Ali’s post here: http://aliedwards.typepad.com/_a_/2007/11/christmas-pro-2.html
