Button Tree Ornaments

Love how these Button Tree Ornaments turned out!
Button Tree Ornaments Share & Remember

I hot glued the triangles and trunk together. The kids put the buttons on with Elmer’s glue.

Button Tree Ornaments


  • 3 small craft sticks (green or paint)
  • 1 large craft stick, cut (natural color)
  • buttons
  • craft glue (Elmer’s or hot glue)
  • twine or yarn.


  1. Glue together green craft sticks into a triangle shape. Use strong craft glue or hot glue for best results.
  2. Cut 1 large, natural colored craft stick down to about 1″ – 1/2″ for the tree’s trunk. Glue onto the back of the triangle.
  3. Decorate with buttons as desired.

Adorable! I think we'll do these as name tags - and they'll be ornaments for them to keep! Great idea :)
