Button Christmas tree craft

I originally posted these cute button Christmas trees a couple of years ago as one of my first ever crafts but I decided it was time to revisit them and give the post a little freshen up! My little guy has made several of these today in so many different styles and he has them all lined up in the windowsill like a little Christmas tree forest! I love these little trees and will be sharing a couple of different ideas for how to decorate them.

We finally put our Christmas tree up today and the little ones are starting to get super excited. We won’t be able to have our big family Christmas that we normally have but we’ll make the best of it that we can and what better way to start the season than by decorating the tree and watching home alone! How do you start the festive season?

Here’s what we used

  • Strong crafting card (flimsy card won’t be able to stand and will bend, if you use thin card you will need to mount it on thick card so it can stand)
  • Buttons (US/UK)
  • Toilet roll
  • Brown paint
  • Glue  (US/UK)
  • Scissors
  • Free Christmas tree template (optional)

How to make our button Christmas trees craft

Start by taking the empty toilet paper roll and covering it in brown paint before putting it aside to dry.

Cut out a Christmas tree shape, don’t forget you can use our free printable as a template!

Glue down a selection of buttons over your tree
