This little guy is called a 'button tree' and I got the idea from Ali's blog (I get a ton of ideas from Ali, she is supper creative). The original idea is to use all buttons and it looks totally cool but I decided to change mine up a bit, so instead of all buttons, I also used the large sequins. As for the buttons, any head pin will do to keep them in your styrofoam tree; but to keep the sequins in, I found out the hard way that the longer length sequin pins work better (3/4 inch I believe). On the top of the tree I used a head pin as well and added a few sead beads on it before putting it in the top, I did have to use some adhessive to keep this top pin in place and it might not be a bad idea to use an adhessive when putting all your pins in, give them a little more holding power.
Anyways that's all for now, as I said I do plan on getting down to an actual schedule for postings, but we'll see. Hopefully tomorrow and Wednesday will be productive days for me and I will have lots to share come the weekend. Thanks for checking in! : )
