Button Christmas Tree
Popsicle sticks (plain or pre-colored), buttons, glue,optional cardstock and small photo.
This project makes a really fun ornament or fridge magnet! Using popsicle sticks (plain or pre-colored), make a tree by gluing two full-length sticks in a cross shape. Then cut another stick into a 1/3 and 2/3 length for the graduated middle and top branch of the "tree". Search through some old buttons or buy some from the craft store. Use a 4,3,2,1 pattern to put buttons along each branch and a top button on the tree. To add an additional touch, I cut out a pot shape from cardstock, attached it to the bottom of the tree, and put my kids' school pictures on it to remember the year they made their ornament.
