Now, onto what I actually put inside the frame. I love buttons, actually I am obsessed with buttons. I am positive that I have more buttons than is probably necessary. Sometime I will have to take a picture of my button collection, but today I am going to show you my button tree.
I have made something very similar to this for fall decorations and such, but I have never made an everyday button tree. I love how it turned out. It is so simple, but it works.

Here is how I made it:
Supplies Needed:
Foam board
brown cardstock
Green scrapbook paper
Mod Podge
Hot Glue
Step 1: Paint your base piece. I painted it plain pink and then later decided to add some light pink scrolls, and swirls to add something more.
Step 2: Cut out the tree and hills. For the tree I made this template. I just free-handed the hills.
Step 3: Cut out foam board for your background.
Step 4: Mod podge your tree and hills onto your foam board.
Step 5: Hot glue buttons onto your foam board. I like to lay mine out before hand to make sure I have them right where I want them and then I glue them on.
That’s it! You could make this your own by using a different color scheme and background. I made this one to match Hannah’s new room re-do. I love how it turned out and best of all Hannah loves it too! She told me it was “bootiful” when I showed it to her. :)
