DIY button ornaments

We have a fun and easy tutorial for you today, courtesy of Blick Art Materials.  They challenged us to re-create their popular diy button ornaments.  We thought it would be cute to create a design in them so we came up with matching Christmas trees.  My 7 year old son helped me make these.  He was afraid of the glue gun but we had fun chatting while he handed me button after button.  He was excited picking out his favorite styles in the big bag of assorted buttons.  This is a fairly quick craft (I would definitely recommend having your piles ready to just grab from) that kids can do (old enough to use a glue gun wisely) with no mess to clean up.
