Button Garland

And so begins the Christmas Parade!!!
Super easy, a kid can do it.. string buttons of choice on hemp twine. Thread through two holes, slide the button where you want it, and it will stay. Tie a loop in each end to hang on the tree. also made a strand with red buttons and wrapped a little wreath.
Nice way to use heirloom buttons with memories. I will say I probably saw this on Martha Stewart! Ha!

That's a cute idea! I love buttons. I have a big box with lots of them. Some from garage sales & some from the quilt shop in McMinnville. I just noticed your other comment on my blog about the barn picture. Yes, I took it on that snowy day we came up to your house and it has been a favorite picture of mine. Too bad they "fixed" it. If you decide to come with Mel, you can sleep on the couch! Would love to see you. Love, Gladys

It is useful to try everything in practise anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
