Advent Blog Day 4 : Button Up 
It won't be a surprise to my crafty friends that buttons make the best little table top Christmas trees. Admittedly, these Christmas trees aren't the 2 metre tall trees like yesterday's cycle trees but these make a lovely addition to Christmas home decorating and are fun to make. 

Wouldn't you like to show off those buttons you keep in an old tin or a glass bottle ?

Sorting into colours might be  a good idea before starting this project but then an eclectic mix of old and new do just as well.

And when you don't have enough of the right colour, a coat of paint or go metallic can add bling to the project.

These cone Christmas trees have been around for awhile, so if you are over this style, why not try an innovative  variation .... here's an idea which mixes circles of fabric with buttons. 

Not enough buttons?  There's always a little button Christmas tree project for your to try.

These little trees  also make beautiful hanging ornaments and they make great gifts, especially for sewing friends. I received one from a friend last Christmas and love mine.

And with these pictorial instructions from Beutron, the well known button makers, I am off to search for a few more buttons. 
See you here tomorrow with another exciting idea to create an unusual Christmas tree.
