Beautiful Button Tree


I had to share this cute button tree made by Elsie at 
Kitsch and Curious - what a great way to reuse those
odd buttons that we collect in jars and drawers! I love 
how folks are always coming up with creative ways to 
use old salvaged materials and might even try my hand
at one of these (on my "to do one day" list!) What a great
way to display your pretty buttons!  





I think this would be neat made with colored
buttons that match the seasons: 


One in autumn shades of orange, red and brown for fall.



One in white and clear buttons for winter.


One in light green with maybe some pale pink here

and there for springtime.


One with bright greens for summer.





What do you think?

I hope you have a great week 
Love, Laura

  3. Very cute and I love salvaged things too. This could make a dandy earring display piece. Or you could wire cute vintage stud earrings permanently into the tree, too.

  4. I love her mix of colors. And I like your idea to make one for each season too.
    The spool base is such a fun finishing touch :)

  7. This is such a cute idea! I like the twist on seasons you suggested. It could also be a cute little jewelry tree to make with kids/for kids. :)
