30 Minute Christmas Craft

So I made this last night and I'm so excited about it! It turned out cute AND it was easy AND it was fast. It doesn't get better than that. I was inspired by this tree

It is quite simple to make. This is all you need-
 A foam cone, pins with pretty colored heads, and lots of buttons!  

Then you just take the pins and start sticking them through the holes of the buttons to place the buttons on the tree.  Easy, right?!

The pin heads end up looking like the Christmas lights on your tree.
(The white spaces are NOT so obvious, I promise.  It's the flash of the camera.  I might add a few more buttons.  You could also use a green foam cone and I think that would look better.)

I have another cone and some different colored buttons.  I'll definitely be making another ones of these guys!  We have a church Christmas party coming up this weekend and some of the ladies signed up to decorate tables.  This is a little sneak peek of my table display!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!!!
