Pinterest strikes again!! Saw a button tree idea on there and had to try it. My main problem is that I have been unable to find the right pins I want to use, so I bought ones at The Evil Empire that are pretty, but really too large.
I first painted the styrafoam cone blue, then applied a coat of multi-coloured glitter paint over the blue.
Then started adding the buttons. It was a bit like a jigsaw puzzle to make them fit right.
Here's the finished product. I have one more cone left and I'm hoping to find the right pins before I do another one, although I do like how colourful this one is.
The top part is temporary for now. I didn't get the little styrafoam balls that the Pinterest craft showed as the topper.
