Christmas Tree with Vintage Buttons

My Mom has a GIANT collection of buttons! A lot of them are really cool vintage buttons. This year, we decided to make button Christmas trees.

We started with frames and painted them bright red. Then cut out scrapbook paper to use as the background. Place the buttons in the shape of the tree and the scrabble tiles for the base. They are so simple and cute!




I will be linking to these parties this week. Happy holidays!

    updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

  64. merci pour le partage !... je cherche des freebies sur le web, mais je recherche aussi des créations "faciles" : mon but est de permettre aux gens qui n'ont pas beaucoup d'argent, ou qui débutent le bricolage, de créer des choses simples, ne demandant pas d'outils particuliers, ni trop de matériel... lorsque je trouve des choses qui me plaisent, je partage mes liens : je viens de créer celui-ci !... http://pinterest.com/lemondedis/ (j'ai déjà plus de 14000 liens vers des téléchargements gratuits et quelques autres milliers vers des projets de création !)
