Yesterday evening I was home with just Margot, she had been fed and finally went down for the night and I was in the mood to create something! I'm too loud in the kitchen and didn't want to wake her up so baking something was out of the question. Then I remembered our dogs recently demolished a tree in our backyard and the branches were sitting outside next to the trash can because they wouldn't fit into it. So I went out, broke a small branch off and brought it inside!
As you know, I love buttons and I love trees....so after staring at the branch for a while, I decided to make a button tree! I got a glass planter (India, if you're reading this you'll recognize it! Sorry I killed your plant!) which was still filled with soil and I stuck the tree branch down in it so it stood up straight. Then I dug though my button collection and picked out some old vintage ones. I tied the buttons to a piece of black thread, then tied each thread to the branch tips. And there you have it! A button tree! Simple, but I really like it.
