Am planning an Autumn themed programme and there was the idea for creative button trees, just perfect.

All that fun of painting the trees and tree talk.

Buttons also tell stories.
I think many of us have button jars or our grandmothers' did, so I look forward to some lively conversation.

These are fun, we made some last year with our group. We used flat backed canvases so that is was easy for our clients to glue the buttons on. Great activity for any skill level!
