Default TLC873 ~ Button Tree Embellishment ~ 11/15/2021

Happy Monday.

Soooo we are about 6 weeks from Christmas (YES! can you believe it?) For today's challenge, I found a fun tutorial far back in the Splitcoast Tutorial files that I thought would be great to bring out of the vault. The Button Tree Pendant was by Glenda Marklew and Dina shares a video tutorial for us. The tutorial is HERE: Button Tree Pendant on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers.

I thought since everyone may not have access to the jewelry tools and supplies, I would see if I could make it with just buttons and twine. I assume if you guys are like me, you have lots of buttons and twine in your stash. As you may know, using my stash has been a goal of mine this year so this project feel like a win for sure!

I created a quick video to show you my process with the twine if you want to see it - They are so easy a quick to make so would be perfect to produce multiples in a sitting. My video is

These would make great pendants if you want to do one using the original tutorial, but they would also be great in a wreath or topping a gift. Just grab your buttons -mix and match and see what you come up with. I made mine while watching a Hallmark Christmas movie haha!
