When my daughter and her husband moved into their new house, they trimmed a branch that was hanging over the sidewalk.
I brought the branch home and let it dry out for a few months.
I trimmed the small stickie outie bits off….
And carefully sliced pieces off the branch. The pine wood smelled wonderful!
Then drilled holes
Voila! Handmade wooden buttons- they need to be waxed or varnished…
perhaps embellished with a little woodburning or paint first?
Hmmmm….. my son trimmed the apple trees…. perhaps I should make some apple wood buttons…..
