5 Beautiful Button Projects!

DIY Button Projects

5. Button Tree by Crafts by Amanda

As you all know from my Cardboard and Toilet Paper Roll Tree project, trees are my favorite! Therefore, I think this is my favorite button project of all time! Crafts by Amanda shows us how to make a button tree using canvas, paint, and, of course, buttons! To make this project even more eco-friendly, consider using a low VOC spray paint and green tempera paint like these from Dick Blick.
