I wish my residents at my retirement home had the dexdarity to make these. I may switch it up and paint the trunks on and have them glue the buttons on instead! I think they would love this idea~

Now to put the word out to the families that we NEED buttons! lol

Thanks for a great idea~

So pretty! I was *just* trying to think of ideas for the small button collection I just inherited (a large mason jar full... only WISH I had 5 cookie tins!) and this is a great idea. I think a 4 set for each season would be perfect for this. This one looks very fall-ish, could use white buttons for winter, green and floral ones for spring and maybe a brighter green and fruit colored one for summer. I wish I had enough buttons to do my own button trees. *sigh*

I recognize some of those! I have my grandma's button collection from when she was making rag-rugs. Man, I have maybe 8 gallon ziplock bags full. This would be a good way to used them up if I had the patience for sewing buttons!

Fabulous!
I might have to jump on the button tree bandwagon as well!  I'm really loving all the ones I have been seeing and I want one (stomps foot and pouts)
Very pretty - I can see why it was in the hot new projects!
