Last summer, I pulled out a big coffee can full of buttons with every color, shape, and size you can imagine. I created some simple button bells to hang as decor in my flower gardens. Now that the Christmas tree is up and the decorations, I decided to pull out some of those buttons and create gift tags and ornaments. If you have buttons, then you have endless possibilities for fun! Join me and let’s make some button Christmas tree decorations to help deck the halls this season!

Button Christmas Tree Ornaments
Buttons are the perfect inspiration for all kinds of decorations, ornaments, and accent pieces in the garden. Here are some of the fun ideas to get you started!
- Assorted buttons of all colors and sizes
- Crafting wire or braiding cord
You can leave the buttons in a huge mixed pile or separate them out by color. I had an unused drawer organizer that is made for screws and hardware in the garage so I took a few minutes and put them in individual drawers by color. It did make the creating process go smoother!
Button Tree Decorations
- Choose 7-8 buttons of graduated size
- Cut a piece of craft wire about 18 inches long
- Attach each button from the bottom up
- Make a loop at the top and then twist around to tighten the knot
- Cut off the excess wire and hang on a Christmas tree or plant hanger
I made several of these trees in fun color combinations to use for the garden last summer but now they are perfect for Christmas gift tags or tree ornaments.
Whether you choose to stick to basic browns and cream or branch out to other festive colors, these button trees are perfect for gift tags and Christmas ornaments.
Have you ever made button trees for Christmas? Ever thought about using them to decorate your garden? What do you think? Are you ready to craft a few button ornaments this week?
