Today I made some Christmas button crafts. I came up with these ideas because I wanted to create a few holiday crafts from items I already owned.
I challenged myself to make a few Christmas crafts using items I already had at home. After spending some time in my craft room, I ended up discovering that I could make a lot of different Christmas button crafts!
I own a lot more buttons than I realized and I have lots of colors and sizes and new and vintage buttons. Of course, there weren’t well organized so it did take me longer to find all of my buttons than it did to make the crafts!
As always, I challenged myself to make items that looked like they were store-bought (but weren’t).

Wreath Pillow with Vintage Buttons
I loved making this pillow using vintage buttons. I created a wreath design with buttons and finished it off with a pretty green satin bow.
You can also watch the video below to see how I made this Christmas button craft.

I love to buy vintage buttons and occasionally I buy them at the flea market. (These cost $3 each, including the jar!)
And I will be honest with you. This pillow is easy to make. That’s because all I did was glue buttons onto a pillow cover. And then I added a bow.
Of course, you can also sew the buttons on. I just didn’t have a lot of time so the glue gun was easier.
This pillow was so easy to make and all I used was a pillow cover, vintage buttons, a ribbon, and a glue gun.
Next, I made a button garland. I have these vintage windows hanging in our family room and I like dressing them up every season.
I added a wreath and thought some sways might be a nice addition.
So I pulled out some buttons and some twine and made these garlands.
They are simple and easy to make and I love them. Just thread some twine on a needle and thread it through the button. Tie the back behind each button to hold it in place. Continue threading the buttons on the twine.
They would look great on a mantle and a Christmas tree too.
Do you think I should have made a green garland too?
Button Christmas Tree
I love this button Christmas tree! I had a bunch of buttons in my craft room and I used some pearl head straight pins and just stuck them into a styrofoam cone.
As you can see in the photo below, I randomly placed the buttons on the cone.
Here are some of the hundreds of buttons I own. It’s funny as the only colors I have are white, black, red, green and pink.
