I love buttons because they come in all shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. We use them often for hands on learning activities like in our Pete the Cat
activity. The other day as we were sorting buttons and putting them on pipe cleaners, I came up with our Christmas tree button craft. It’s easy to make and looks as cute as a “button” when it’s done 🙂 (Sorry, I couldn’t resist…the cheesiness just fit in so well).
You could use this craft to make an adorable Christmas card too, just fold your craft paper and make a Christmas tree that will fit perfectly on the card. So let’s get started.
Green craft paper
White craft paper
Washi tape (optional)
1. Use the ruler to draw 3 triangles of varying sizes. Start with the largest triangle, then use it as a template to make the 2 other triangles. You want the angle of the triangles to match, so they line up to make a tree.
2. Fringe the bottom of the triangles and glue them onto craft paper starting with the largest triangle. Cut out a small piece of brown paper for the tree trunk and glue it to the bottom of the tree.
3. Decorate Christmas tree with buttons, sparkles, and washi tape and your done. Easy peasy!
