Since I've gotten all of my Christmas shopping done except for the husband, I'm finding myself doing a lot more crafts than I usually do this time of the year.
I found this project originally on Ali Edwards blog here. Which lead me to Tia Bennett's post and how to on Two Peas. Their photos are great, so I highly recommend visiting their blogs to see their awesome trees. Tia's link has complete how-to instructions.
Below are my quickie instructions:
Here are the supplies. Buttons: over 400. Pins: over 400, pearl white and pink. 9" white foam cone. I put the buttons in the baking dish so I could sort and see what I had to work with.
Following Tia's instructions, use the biggest buttons first and pin randomly. After using biggest buttons, use medium buttons...and so on. Overlap if you need/want to.
About 1.5 hrs later, while watching tv, you'll have this:I used a small jelly jar filled with the unused buttons as my trunk. I kind of screwed it into the foam so it had a lip to settle into. Take lots of cool pictures and share them with your bloggey friends.
