Nap Time Crafts: Button Christmas Tree Decoration

diy button christmas tree decoration

We saw this really lovely craft tutorial on Country Baskets for a simple button tree decoration, so we thought it would make a perfect festive Nap Time Craft.

For this project you will need:

  • An assortment of green buttons in different sizes
  • 1 small yellow button
  • 3 medium-sized red buttons
  • Craft wire
  • Wire cutters/scissors
  • Bakers twine to hang decoration

Begin by cutting your wire. You need to cut it to double the length of your finished tree. You also need a bit extra to tie the decoration at the bottom, and a loop to hang it at the top.

Next, thread your buttons. Start with the yellow button – the star of your tree – and then the smallest green one. Keep going until you have your biggest green button on the strand and finally add your red buttons, which form the tree bucket, on the end.

Thread the wire back through the other hole on your button to make the decoration secure.

Twist the wire at the bottom of the tree to secure the buttons and cut off any excess wire. We then threaded the end of the wire back upon itself so there were no sharp edges exposed. Make sure you leave a small loop at the top so you can hang the decoration.

Finally, thread a length of bakers twine through the top of the decoration and hang it on your tree.
