$5 Christmas—Button Garlands

I’ve always loved buttons.  (Even when I was a kid I’d hide them away in little stashes.)  So when Elizabeth and I started talking about all the different Christmas items we could make for less that $5 I knew I’d have to do something with buttons.
Here’s what I came up with:
 I kind of love it.  I took a bag of white and clear buttons that I had laying around downstairs in a ziplock bag, strung them on some white thread and hung them on my Christmas tree for trim.
It was easy and free.  (You could use any bag of buttons—I’d bet multi-colored, gold, or vintage buttons would all be awesome as well.)
And the best part of this project (besides making me happy) is that when I’m done with it I can reuse the buttons!
PS—I’m out of town right now and am planning on going to my very first flea market today—I’m so excited!

    It’s Elizabeth, as if you didn’t know.

  3. That is such a cute idea. I want one now (and I have a recently acquired bag of vintage buttons as my grandparents had to move–my mom helped them downsize and saved the buttons for me!).

    Have fun at the flea market! I hope you get some great deals.

  4. Hi ladies,I just wanted to wish you both a wholesome and magical Christmas holiday with your family. Thank you for your support and inspiration this past year- you are stars xxx

  5. Such a fun idea. I love buttons too. It’s my favorite way to distract my kids while I’m sewing. :) They love to go through the button collection.
