"Button Trees"

Each year my family makes little "token" gifts to share with each other.  The gifts are usually hand/home made which makes them even more special.  Over the years there have been lots of goodies, homemade chocolates, cookies, dips, trail mixes, soups. There have also been handmade crafts, angels, snowmen, special bulbs, tiny teddy bears, stockings, gingerbread men, glittered pine cones, bells and so on.
The token gifts are to be minimum in cost as well which adds to the challenge!
This year Hubby & I went to several craft shows where we saw "Button Tree" ornaments and I knew we had found our gift idea.  A trip to Walmart for the special Christmas buttons, then to The Dollar Tree for the sprigs of greenery next to a small store that sells all types of spices for the cinnamon sticks we had gathered our supplies.  Once home out came my button jar and ribbon. 
The trees were easy to craft and are sure to give a festive look to wherever they are hung, be it on a tree, wreath or peg shelf!
Thanks for visiting.
