Make ornaments from everyday objects!

Button Ornament Tree

Last year, I posted this button tree on my blog and wanted to re-feature it again today. Since so many of you out there are either wanting to purge or save a few coins this season, why not take something you already have (like old buttons) and repurpose them into fun ornaments. I simply hung these to the tree using basic craft wire!

Here’s some other ideas other than buttons that may strike your fancy!!!

Mismatched earrings
Finally! Something to do with that earring you lost the match too!

Office supplies
I can just envision paper clip garland as I type this!

Craft supplies
Repurpose those old scrapbook embellishments and random beads into cool tree bling!

Mini toys
Sounds like a great way to display that collection to me!

Junk drawer finds
Repurpose stuff you normally don’t use into totally cool tree d├ęcor! Think outside of the box as to what an ornament can be!

Please let me know if you have any other ideas. I admittedly wrote this on the fly. I’d love to hear your unique ideas!

Until next time Swellions!
