Well friends, I think I'm scratching the bottom of the crafty barrel. I've been so busy working on items for my shop/local shop that doing other crafty things has kinda fallen by the wayside.
So here's all I could come up with.
Last year Kyle and made button garland for our tiny toothpick tree. I have quite the collection of vintage buttons so it seemed fitting.
Last year I just wrapped it up around an empty toilet paper roll and threw it in the storage box. Big mistake.
This year we didn't have button garland. We had a giant garbled button mess.
There was lots of this
This year Kyle had the great idea of using pvc pipe (thin-walled 4-inch pvc to be exact...my hubby used to work at a hardware store) to store our treasured garland.
There are very few supplies involved. Just pipe, snips, and a very fierce looking husband.
Cut a notch.
Cut another notch to make a little triangle.
It looks like this (but much less blurry).
There you have it! Button garland ready for happy, carefree storing.
