You know that you want to! I already had most of the supplies that I needed: Styrofoam tree (you can use any size), lots and lots and lots of buttons, corsage pins, Pink Paislee Glitter, Mod Podge, Doodlebug jewels, Heidi Swapp acrylic star and any other fun bits and pieces that you want to add.
The first tree that I made used only white buttons. Just layer them onto your tree, there was no method to my madness. I did think it was easier to start at the top and work my way down, but you can do whatever works for you. All of the white buttons that I used belonged to my grandmother along with the ornament that I used as a topper for the tree. It was nice to incorporate a part of her into a current project.
And the glitter. Did I mention the glitter?
To make the pink tree, I just switched the color scheme. For the topper I used an acrylic star from Heidi Swapp that I covered in Mod Podge and glitter. I found the fun corsage pins at the Etsy shop Caramelos Artful Supplies. She has such cute stuff!
Don't you just love Christmas/Holiday crafts?
These trees make me ridiculously happy. I am easily entertained.
Stay tuned for the 12-ish Days of Cookies and the 12 Days of Christmas activities at my house! Happy Monday! :)
