Thrifty Button Trees

By: Kathy Lewinski for Just Crafty Enough

Nothing beats thrifty knitting projects, especially when you're able to find some great ones to use for decorating during the holiday season. Aside from being trendy and cute, these Thrifty Button Trees are a great way to use up some of that holiday yarn that's still in your stash from last year. Plus this project is so easy, it would be a great way to involve the entire family. These wacky trees are reminiscent of Dr. Seuss's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas".

Oh how CUTE!

YES! I will absolutly knit these adorable trees! Infact I plan on knitting a forest full! I think I'll make them in different colors (a good way to use up my stash) & making the dowels different heights. It seems like a good little project to do when I need a break from my more complicated knitting

Yes I will definitely knit these. I am always looking for items like this to make for Christmas lunches as place markers.

yes I would if I had more room in my home to place them, maybe for my kids home!!!!

These are nice but I would take a different approach and make them out of Christmas fabric and bit of stuffing. It would be faster and easier for me.

Definitely would knit these! Directions were very clear. Great hostess gift or gift for a teacher.

sure I would make these I think they are cute. Plus its always fun to add a new decoration or two..

Cute idea!!! They would cute in a variegated green yarn!!

I would knit these. I think they are great

Cute, a bit avant garde and this would be fun to make. I can especially see it on a reception desk in an office.
