I have to make a confession. Anytime I go to a thrift store (which is embarrassingly often), I make a bee-line for the button bin. I love collecting buttons. I just don’t like talking about my buttons because … well … to be honest, it’s a little boring to look at peoples’ button collections.
So I won’t show you my (vast) button collection. But I will show you something I made with my vast button collection!
I am sincerely hoping that, since I didn’t make you suffer through a tour of my buttons, you will forgive my pictures being dark. I keep forgetting to take pictures of this during the day and indoor winter photography is very hard for me.
But I digress. The tree template is actually a Halloween quilt pattern from my friend Missie at The Quilt Stop here in town. http://myquiltstop.blogspot.com/
I took a 5×7 frame from Dollar General and removed the glass. Then I glued some background paper to the back part of the frame, glued down my tree and then buttons and finished it off with a “Happy Thanksgiving” sticker. Which is all pretty self-explanatory. Have fun making yours!
