Seasons Button Tree

I have added another button activity to my arsenal of fun things to button. This one is a seasonal tree, so you can button on the different seasons. It includes white snow for winter, green for spring, orange and red for fall, and fruit of red or orange for summer. The tree itself I made reversible so there is a lush green on one side, and a tan for bare branches on the other side to simulate the seasons. I {Read More}

The felt ornaments stay on just by placing them like a felt board, but to increase the {Read More}

It is adorable, and perfect for buttoning since there are lots of parts that need buttoning on. You have to button on the body and head, three coal buttons, arms, mouth, hat, and nose. Such fun to build the snow man out of felt. To make your own, you just need three {Read More}
