I changed the trunk style, instead of using brown buttons, I used:
1. a small wooden spool
2. a gold jingle bell
3. a small silver liberty bell
This next photo shows the liberty bell base better
Each tree ended up a different size, and this just depends on the number of buttons you use - I really like the variety.
The only difficulty is finding the right piece to place on top of the tree, the star beads work well although I would have like to have had something different on each. I had many star and angel buttons, but I could not attach them to the top securely. I had different coloured stars, so that ensured they are a little different from each other.
I have to warn you once you start making these little button trees, they are addicting, I loved making them
Because I had not set up a tree, I was having a problem trying to take photos of my new ornaments, Today I grabbed a small branch from the yard, and put it in a rusty bucket - just so that I can take these photos ... what do you think? Nice and rustic!
I hope you have started making your Christmas tree decorations for this year?
