Ornament Month! Tiny Tree Ornament
Today's ornament idea came from everyone's favorite crafter (Besides me of course) Martha Stewart!
Here is her tutorial for these cute stacked button ornaments: Button Ornaments. Note that the little Christmas tree was totally my idea though ;)
I didn't use pipe cleaners. Instead I used this fun colored wire I got on clearance at Michael's!
If you happen to get your hands on this stuff, be careful. I've broken it a few times just by twisting too hard. So for my ornament I used double ply red wire and then CAREFULLY twisted it into a hanger at the top.
Other than that, all you need is buttons! I happen to have tons of buttons right now (I got a whole bunch in the dollar bin at Michael's with a 20% off entire purchase coupon, so that worked out to be a pretty good deal! In fact I might get some more this weekend when my new 20% off coupon becomes active. I absolutely love shopping the dollar bins with a 20% off coupon!)
I love buttons! Even though it is pretty tiny, and may get a little lost on a big Christmas tree, I really like how my little tree ornament turned out so I'm thinking I'll try a snowman next. Here's hoping it turns out great! And if you love buttons as much as me I have another even more awesome button ornament to show you soon :)
