Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop



Another great day. The talent here is phenomenal! Thanks to Lisa for hosting this absolutely fabulous hop! I have a really great project to share with you today.

I want to decorate my hutch for Christmas really beautiful so I have been making some new home decor items to help with the decor. As always I went to my favorite place for inspiration, Pinterest. I saw this one day and really wanted to duplicate it but since my color scheme for Christmas is green, red, and white I decided to do my Christmas tree up a little different.



I used straight pins with white heads on them to pin the buttons on so they look like they are the white twinkling lights of the tree. Then, the white buttons are the tree topper and red buttons the ornaments. Hope you like it! It took me only about an hour to make it! Oh, for the tree I used a styrofoam cone.

See you tomorrow~

Great idea Teresa. I was wondering how you attached the buttons but when I read your post description and looked I the picture again I understood. Very wonderful idea and plus you can take it apart after Christmas and use the buttons for something else.
Hugs, Rosalee
