Christmas Tree Button Coaster DIY | Another Coaster Friday

It's time for Christmas crafting!  If you are looking for Christmas craft ideas, this is a holiday Christmas tree coaster!  It's an easy craft!

Wood tree:
Green paint:
Green buttons:
Seed beads:
Green glitter:

Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:

1.  I found this tree at the craft store.  It was in a kit, with little markers, which I did not need.  I found similar trees - MUCH CHEAPER - on Amazon and I listed them above.

2.  I painted it green, using acrylic paint.  I made sure to paint the edges and the back.

3.  Once the paint has dried, I painted on the glue.  Make sure not to go too thin!

4.  I added a red button to the top of the tree and layered it with two smaller buttons.  

5.  Then, I added green buttons, in a random pattern.  While you are doing this, realize that they are round and you will not be able to fully cover the tree.

6.  I added two brown buttons to the bottom, for the trunk.

7.  I pulled out my glass seed beads and pulled out green and red beads and a few brown.

8.  I added the seed beads between the buttons. I tried to have the sides up, so you see the colors.  They make a good filler in between and the red looks like little decorations.

9.  I added green glitter and let it dry.
Once dry, I tapped off the excess glitter and it is finished!

I think it makes a super cute coaster.  You can put silicone dots on the back, or you can add cork to the back.  

That's it!  Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
