I came across a collection of buttons at garage sale recently and have been waiting for just the right project for them. This is it!
How about a bright button garland for the Christmas tree?
We used a long strand of thread and a needle. After we threaded our needle, we lit our beeswax candle and carefully dipped the double end of the thread, below the needle, into the beeswax and rubbed it between our fingers. This binds the thread together and makes it so that the needle stays threaded throughout the whole project… Teddy, in particular, gets very frustrated if he keeps loosing his thread.
This tip makes any needle and thread project kid-friendly
Thread the buttons onto your string.
One by one until your Christmas garland is ready to hang on your tree.
Such a fun and festive project.
Blessings and magic,
