Framed Button Box Snowman & Christmas Tree

October 28, 2012
I worked on Christmas crafts this weekend.

I started with Dollar Tree 4 x 6 frames. The frames were real wood stained or painted red. I picked out buttons from my button box, cut a scrap of burlap, and purchased a 1/2 yard of rhinestone look ribbon at the craft shop. (I used very little ribbon, you will have a lot leftover for other crafts.)

These supplies were for the button snowman frame.

I laid just the wood part of the frame over the burlap on a newspaper insert and positioned the buttons in a tree shape within the frame.

I used fast grab Aleene's Tacky Glue for gluing the buttons on the burlap. I used a Q-tip to put glue on the backs of the buttons.

Mod Podge was used to stick the burlap to the frame cardboard backs. I am spreading out the Mod Podge on the cardboard frame backs here.

The finished button Christmas Tree frame. The glue will dry clear in the button holes.

An easy and inexpensive craft project for Christmas.

  5. They a so cute! The snowman is adorable!
    I had an idea as I was reading the post--to make a few and give them to people instead of a Christmas card! A greeting could be written on the back. . .Most cards cost more than this project!

  6. I LOVE the re-purposing you can do here with the buttons!! So cute!! Found you on Meet Me Monday.

  7. Carlene, I saw these on FB and thought they were as cute as can be. You must have quite a button collection. I think these would make the best gifts and you are so smart to get started early.

  8. Wait a minute!! I just finished decorating for Halloween and you've already got 2 Christmas projects done!

    Very cute! I like the bling you used for the scarf.

  9. These are just flat out adorable! I love both of them and would love to have something like this for my home! Super cute!!!!

    hugs, Linda
