Tons of Buttons!

I was fortunate enough to recieve a huge batch of vintage buttons from my father. He sat and helped me sort them by color then (because there were so many) had to wait for his yearly visit to bring them to me as they wouldn't fit in my luggage last time i flew to see my family.

I've started making one of a kind trees with these beauties. The tree featured above is created with gold tone wire and stacked cream buttons. I then mounted it on a 3" square mirror base.
I'll be sad when I run out of buttons! I've already created a few pieces with them and hope to make many more before they run out.

  1. What a creative use of the buttons! Love it.

    BTW, cherish those times with your dad. I miss mine every day.
