So You Think You're Crafty, I found this cute Trim the Tree pillow when I was looking through the new holiday items at Land of Nod. When I saw the name of the pillow, I got very excited because I thought that it was a Christmas tree that little ones could actually decorate. It turned out that the ornaments were stitched on and not removable.
I attached my buttons to snaps by either sewing them on or using super strong glue, depending on the button.
My mom also had the idea that it would be cute to add some snaps around the trunk and attach some snaps to square buttons for gifts or even buttons that look like toys. I just ran out of time for this step before my contest entry was due, but I think that would be a fun addition.
Obviously, these button ornaments would be a choking hazard for young children. My girls are old enough that this isn't an issue, but please don't make this for young kids who might be tempted to put the buttons in their mouth!
