Rudolph the Red-nosed Christmas Tree

So, by now I am sure you know how to make a covered button thumbtack or magnet. If not, see the excellent, super easy thumbtack tutorial here.

I whipped up this little tree while thinking about the limitations on christmas decorations presented by my sister's New York apartment and her naughty cats.

For this little project I used scraps of one of my Spoonflower fabrics and a piece of felt I had lying around. I used 3/4" covered buttons, but if I had had great big ones I'd have done that in green with teeny-tiny wedding-dress-sized red ones wedged between. I am going to search through my fabric stash for something to be a tree trunk, but in the mean time, I think this is kinda cute.
