White button Christmas tree


Hello Design Dazzle readers!  I’m Rachel from Holy Craft!  I am so excited to be back posting about a fabulously easy but adorably fun white button Christmas tree.  I always love to follow along with this Christmas Wonderful series because there are so many great ideas that always inspire me.

I am always picking up supplies throughout the year.  You could call me a craft supply hoarder and it would be absolutely true! I found some Styrofoam cones at the Dollar Tree, some white buttons at a flea market and these white pearl straight pins at Amazon. You should be able to gather all the necessary supplies for under $5.

I randomly gathered all of the white buttons that I had.  Some are bigger, some are smaller.  I slipped a pearl headed pin through one of the holes and simply slipped it into the Styrofoam cone. Once you start reaching the tapered end of the cone, you will need to start angling down your pins, but for the most part, you can push them straight in to your cone.

On zoom, you can see the Styrofoam popping through.  Go through and fill in any gaps with an overlapping button.  For this tree, I used about 250 straight pins and buttons.

I just love how these turned out! They are quite fancy without being too froo-froo if you know what I mean! Simple elegance.  It’s my kind of style!
