Styrofoam Christmas Tree Centerpiece Vintage Buttons DIY

The holidays are here, and many of you are busy planning decorations and meals.  Today I am sharing with you an easy DIY holiday centerpiece using vintage buttons, found objects and Styrofoam™ cones.  This is the perfect project for using up those antique embellishments I can’t resist buying every chance I get!

SUPPLIES:

Floracraft Christmas Centerpiece Using Stryrofoam

Styrofoam™ cones in 3 sizes

Hot glue gun

Vintage buttons, twine, lace, ribbon, doilies, hardware

Decorative eyelets, pearl and jewel stickers in creams, whites, golds and reds

Gold and white tissue paper

Mod Podge

TUTORIAL:

how to make a vintage button christmas tree

For the white button tree, I randomly hot glued buttons from the bottom to the top.  I made a paper foil star with my Tim Holtz 3D star die  and attached it to the top of the tree with a bamboo skewer.  The end.

For the red tree, I did the same thing, but wrapped the tree in red organza before attaching the buttons and hardware.  This was to prevent the white foam from showing.

I placed it on a candle holder as the stand.  Using a gold sparkly mini clothespin, I attached a Christmas tag to the top and tied a bow around that with twine.

For the white and gold tree, I decoupaged gold and white tissue paper onto the cone using Mod Podge.  I added a random piece of hardware with a vintage clothespin, and wrapped that with gold organza and black twine.  It sits on an old jar lid (same jar that use to hold all those vintage buttons)!

Led mini lights strands

Those pretty, warm lights you see in the background are Design it:® LED Light Strands, which I love because they are light weight and ready to go out of the package.  No outlet needed or batteries to buy is always a plus in my book!
