More Tree & button fun

I had a blast this past month making fall trees from the laser die cuts and covering pumpkins with buttons. I decide to combine the 2 for even more holiday fun with Christmas decorating only a few weeks away.
These tree were purchased at Michael's, they were just plain cardboard cones waiting for some love! I used Webster Pages, Waiting for Santa on the punch out tree and a Martha Stewart punch. I added stickles to the ends of each circle, a few pearls and a soft blue crepe bow to the top with a pearl in the center to finish it off.





The second tree was painted with a base coat of Jenni Bowlin malted milk paint dauber. I then began from the bottom of the tree covering it with ivory buttons with a few random turquoise ones spread throughout. I dripped a bit of diamond glaze around the buttons and then sprinkled the entire tree with Pink Paislee 'cream soda' pixee stix. I added a creme crepe bow tot he top with long flowing streamers and a few pearls in the center.

I've visited your blog a few times and am very encouraged by your weight loss. It's been a while since I've seen how you are and you're doing great!!!

Now, I'm falling in love with your craft ideas, especially these trees.

I have 12-year-old twin girls and I think we're going to try to make these this year.

Thanks for sharing your ideas!!!
