Fall Tree Buttons Board

Arbol Otonal de Botones

I recently made this button tree board for C using felt, flower  buttons and a wood board. This will be a fun way for C  to practice how to button. It was very easy and fast to make. This time I didn't use my sewing machine..I thought sewn by hand will be faster!! And I was right. I didn't follow any pattern....It took me about an hour.It was very simple.

Recientemente hice  este  árbol de botones para  C  use fieltro, botones en forma de flores y una tabla de madera. Esta será una forma divertida para que  C practique como usar los botones. Fue muy fácil y rápida de hacerlo. Esta vez no use mi máquina de coser .. Pense que cociendo a mano lo acabaria mas rapido.. y estaba en lo cierto. No seguí ningún patrón .. Es muy simple. Me tomo menos de una hora.



Here is how I presented the activity   to C

Aqui esta la manera en que presente la actividad a C.



She didn't do bad for being her first button board. She asked for help in a couple of buttons and then she finished it all by herself.

C no lo hizo mal para ser su primera actividad de botones.Me pidió ayuda con un par de botones y luego terminó por sí misma.



Thank you for stopping by..Have a lovely day.

Oh my gosh! I LOVE this. So cute. I don't sew but I think I could cut shapes out of felt and hand stitch them on to something. But what did you put the whole thing on? How is it attached?
I am thinking a Christmas tree one with ornaments and snow flakes would be really cute. Let me know the backing so I can get started!!

Thank you for your lovely comments!!

Abbie I glued the hole piece of gray felt to the wood board once it was all stitched..I used hot glue.
First I stitched the brown tree to the background(gray felt) then I stitched the buttons, after that I stitch the toadstool and the orande grass..and finally glued to the board.
If I wouldn't have a wood board handy I will probably have used cardboard.I have lots of them recycled from boxes.
I love your idea of the snow flakes, one you finish yours please let me know so I can check it out..Thank you for stopping by!! : )
