I saw the cutest framed button tree while shopping and decided to make one with my button collection. The inspiration piece had some embroidery and used only white/off-white buttons.
First I placed the buttons on the charcoal grey(it looks blue in my pictures) flannel. I put a little glue on each one, making sure that I didn't get any glue in the holes. Then after the glue set, I sewed each button on with red thread.
Now I need to decide what embroidery/stitching to add. I need a tree trunk too : )
When it is finished, do you think I should make it into a mini quilt or frame it? I am not usually one to use embellishments, but this was so fun and easy, and at this busy time of year that makes it a perfect project!
