1. Organize your buttons. Stack your trunk buttons together. Then stack your green buttons, largest at the bottom to form a Christmas tree.

2. Cut a long piece of thread, about 24″. Thread through the buttons beginning with the tree topper, through the tree and trunk, making sure there’s lots of thread left on the tree topper side.

3. Thread back through trunk, tree and tree topper. Tie a knot directly against the tree so the buttons stay in place. Then tie a bow a few inches above so it can hang nicely from your tree.


And there you have it. Simple, beautiful, and oh so easy!!!

Oh my goodness - super cute. We have a ton of buttons (not sure how I acquired a box of them but I did) and this would be awesome to help use some up. I would love to try different colours - red and white maybe
