Framed Christmas Tree Button Art

You and your kids will have tons of fun with this simple and cute Framed Christmas Tree Button Art project! And who doesn’t love buttons?!

Christmas Tree Button Art

All you need is a frame, some buttons and glue. You may have some old frames kicking around the house. Dust them off or paint them to freshen up the look. I picked this frame up at a local thrift store for $0.25!

Pick out some paper to glue your buttons on to! I painted plain white white paper, but you can also use scrapbook paper, burlap, newspaper, or a paper bag to create your own unique look.


Place your buttons on the paper to form an outline of your Christmas tree. Once you have a pleasing shape, START GLUING! A glue gun will secure all those buttons in place. Clear drying craft glue is also great for little helpers to use 🙂


Now you have a fantastic and memorable gift, or a wonderful new addition to your Christmas decor!

TIP: If you are piling your buttons on high, you can leave the glass out of your frame 🙂

This is beautiful! I used to love sifting through old buttons at school and sorting them.
