What You Will Need
Green buttons of different sizes
Create an adorable mini Christmas tree ornament to spice up your Christmas tree.
Gather the materials.
Sort the green buttons according to their different sizes. Include the star-shaped bead and brown buttons on either end.
Cut a piece of string depending on the desired length of the tree.
Create the trunk by stringing the brown buttons. Slot the two ends of the string into the holes diagonally opposite each other. Adjust the length of the
trunk by altering the number of buttons. Create the tree by stringing the green buttons in a similar fashion. Start from the biggest and end with the smallest.
Lastly, string in the star-shaped bead and tie a knot. Tie another knot with the ends of the string to form a loop. Hang the ornament on a Christmas tree.
