I have been asked by quite a few people about the "adorable button trees". So here are the directions on how to make them:
Michaels has the best selection of foam cones...Buy one.
We have collected buttons over the many years of crafting, but if you don't have any, buy them at Walmart in those packages that cost $1.78 for 130 buttons. JoAnns has them on sale once in a while for 1/2 off...Buy some.
We used pins with pearl heads or ones with different colors. Buy these at Walmart, where they are cheaper. JoAnns has a good selection too...Buy some of these also.
Take a pin and poke it through a hole in a button. You can stack buttons is you like. If you have young children, they like to see how many buttons you can get on a pin. Stick it in the cone, makeing sure to point the needle down, so that it doesn't poke through the other side.
Waalaa...you have a button tree.
Now if you ever need a button, you will have to dig through your Christmas decorations to find one.
