How to Make a Button Tree in Embroidery Hoop
Button craft ideas can help you use up materials you already have. Learn how to make a Button Tree in Embroidery Hoop from Heather Valentine and find out how to use up buttons from your stash. Best of all, you can adhere the dots with adhesives, no needle or thread required.
Gather up fabric scraps to construct the trunk and branched of the tree. Adhere the scraps using Aleene's Double Stick Tacky Sheets. Be sure to smooth the fabric out completely to avoid wrinkles or bubbles. Use glue dots to adhere buttons to canvas. Use buttons of different shapes and sizes to create an unexpected look. Cut away excess fabric from the hoop and tuck and extra pieces underneath. If you feel comfortable with a needle and thread, add grass using a running stitch.
