1 2-1/2" terra cotta pot (the taller one)
1 3/4" wooden bead
12" silver twine
15 buttons of varying size and color
Green acrylic paint
Tools: (not pictured)
1 paint brush
hot glue gun
Step 1: Paint terra cotta pot green. Let dry completely.
Step 2: While paint is drying, fold silver twine in half. Knot end near loose ends, so you will have a loop.
Step 3: Thread wooden bead on to silver twine.
Step 4: Make another larger knot on silver twine. Set aside.
Note: The length can vary; she made hers about 1-1/2" above the wooden bead.
Step 5: Glue buttons on to your "tree" in any fashion you like. (She did the buttons: large first, then medium and finally small.)
Note: If using a hot glue gun for this step, be careful because the glue will come through the buttonholes.
