I am super excited to share this Christmas Tree Button Craft. I have never tried button crafts before so this was a first for me and something I felt quite proud of. It’s a great fun idea for kids and can be done in the classroom or at home.

How To Make This Christmas Tree Craft

To begin with, I cut out a Christmas Tree shape from the green foam.

I then cut out a tree trunk from the brown foam material.

I then used the glue gun to glue the base of the tree to the trunk.

Now the tree is ready to start adding buttons.

Using the glue gun I placed glue on the button and then began sticking them to the Christmas Tree.

I chose to use green white and red buttons to go with my Christmas theme but you could you any buttons you like.

 I think using different colours and different shapes and sizes can make this craft idea really effective.


You can buy buttons from lots of different places but I find buying packets of craft buttons more cost effective.

You then fill up the tree with buttons until it is completely covered.

     

This was a fun craft for me to make and I think it would be fun for kids or adults alike.

I really hope you like this craft idea. I’m hoping to make some more in the upcoming months as I have lots of ideas in my head.

  1. Creative idea! This is the cutest Christmas tree.. Your’e such a talented person. I wish I could the same thing with you.

  2. My grandchildren and I just finished making candy canes and wreaths with beads for the Christmas tree. We have a few more ornament crafts then I think we’ll try these. The kids will enjoy using something we haven’t used before. I’m thinking of maybe adding magnets as my kitchen has nothing Christmas themed. Thank-you for the wonderful fun idea!

  3. This is such a cute craft idea. I will have to get out my supplies and make some this weekend. My Daughter will love it.

  4. What an easy craft to make! I will share this with a good friend. She runs her own pre-school and I know she’ll love to make this with her cute little students. Thanks for the idea!

  5. This is such a great activity idea for the kids. Such a cute button Christmas tree. It can help kids to be more creative and talented when it comes to art.
