I live in an area surrounded by countryside & woods which I love to have a ramble through with the children over the weekend. Invariably we tend to come back with a variety of sticks & branches, that have been fashioned into either walking sticks, swords, light sabres or harry potter wands & broomsticks. One thing that I have never considered, was turning those branches into... you guessed it! Buttons!
Lindsay from Shrimp Salad Circus has a great tutorial on how to make rustic wooden tree branch buttons. This is such an quick & easy little craft to do, I will most definitely be on the lookout for my own perfect stick, then next time we are on a ramble.
