 Jeweled Vintage Buttons Christmas Tree Decor!

 Make a stunning addition to your Christmas holiday decor with this vintage button tree. Just an old frame, burlap, hot glue, some colored paper and buttons is all it takes!

I love buttons.  When I was little, one of my favorite things was going through my mom's button jar.  Buttons are so cool!  I found little jeweled ones, big and small, I wanted them all.  

Since then, I've collected my own jar of buttons...I buy them at yard sales and get tons of vintage buttons just like my moms.  I decided to make it a piece of Christmas inspired seasonal art!

 Supplies Needed for Button Christmas Tree:

Buttons: All kinds of buttons in greens, golds and bright colors!

Green and kraft paper cardstock
Vintage style frame with burlap inside the glass
Hot Glue/gun

Step One:    

     Get started by cutting a big isosceles triangle out of the green cardstock and a trunk out of the kraft paper.  

Hot glue them right onto the glass of the picture frame that has burlap or some fun colored paper inside.  This is a great way to upcycle an old frame.

Step Two:

     Next, the fun part.  Gather all the green and brown buttons you can find...or paint them to the color you want. This is a great time to involve children to help.  

Have them pick out the color of buttons you want. Then place green buttons over the green cardstock and brown over the brown.  Finally, add little ornaments of brightly colored buttons, vintage brass buttons and jeweled buttons. 

 Ultimately Christmas decor perfection.  The ornate frame seals the deal!

This would be an especially wonderful craft to enlist the help of little helpers.  They are great for helping find all the colored buttons they need.  

Plus, they will have the same wonderful memories of looking through button jars and coveting them all.
