Button Christmas Tree

I was feeling crafty today and after getting inspired by some ideas from the website Pinterest ( I decided to make a cristmas tree out of the MANY buttons that I have saved over the years. I have more buttons than you can imagine! I already had the styrofoam cone and an extra box of long white tipped pins so I was ready to go to work.

I think I should have a craft day and invite ladies in to do some crafting together. Sounds like fun, doesn't it!?

Not sure where I will put this, but those are some OLD buttons!!

Some of those buttons remind me of those in Mom's old button jar! I love it!

This is a great way to store buttons - if you need one, just look at the tree and remove it! :)

I deleted the previous comment. Oopseedo! Might some of these be from your mom's collection, Robin? I can remember if I snagged your mom's buttons! Of course, I have my mom's collection & Shareen's mom's collection and they would all be the same vintage! Not to mention 40+ years of my collecting. It was funny though, I guess no one liked green even back in those days as I had a hard time finding green buttons!
