Button Garland Tutorial: A Ballard Knock-Off

So my last post was about how I get things done with a baby. That day I posted it I didn't get anything done. I didn't even get a shower. Isn't it funny how life works like that? Life is awesome.
Today I have something Christmasy! I saw a button garland in a Ballard Design magazine that they strung up on a Christmas tree. I love that it's all pearly white buttons.
I looked through my stash of buttons and found a bag of white buttons. They aren't all shiny, but they are all unique.
I got a needle and thread. I threaded the thread through the needle and tied the other end in a knot around a button.
Then I strung buttons along trying to be as random as possible.
I made two long button garlands.
And hung them on my cute, tiny tree.
I've been wanting a garland for my tree, and this one adds a little extra sparkle!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
