I actually completed a Christmas craft before December! Not as good as getting it done during the summer, but it's done. Since I've been redoing my craft room (still not finished), I've been spending more time using the new craft table. My supplies are so much easier to find now, so I've been crafting and sewing more lately. I have several Thanksgiving and Christmas projects I'm working on right now. The first one I completed is this cute Christmas tree made from buttons.
Styrofoam cone ( I used a 9 1/4" tall cone)
long straight pins (about 350 for this size cone)
white glue (I used Aleene's tacky glue)
buttons (I found some Christmas assortments at Hobby Lobby)
tree-topper (I glued together 2 snowflake buttons from the button assortment)
Put a dab of white glue on a button, and beginning at the bottom of the styrofoam cone, pin on the cone. Work your way up the cone, filling in spaces and alternating colors and sizes of buttons.
Near the top of the cone, slant the pins so they do not poke through the cone. Glue a large button on the top, and hot glue on a small tree-topper.
This will be a perfect decoration for my craft table. That's one holiday craft on my to-do list done. Now to start on another. Let's see...Thanksgiving napkin rings, Christmas ornaments?
