6 Weeks of Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas, Week #4: Christmas Dishtowels with Button Christmas Trees

A great hostess gift, gift basket item, co-worker gift, or something to give someone who you just don't know what to give.  Simple too!

Purchase a dish towel for each one you'll be making.  If you have buttons, use what you've got.  If you don't, you'll need to purchase an assortment.  Thread and a needle complete the items you'll need.

Lay out your buttons on a flat surface until you get the look you want.  Then, start sewing.  One button at a time, laying it before putting your needle through it.

Ta da!  You've got a gift completed!!

Other Homemade Holiday Gift Ideas include:
Week 1:  Homemade Bath and Body Products {Soap, Lip Balm, Lotion Bar, and Salt Scrub}
Week 2:  Salt Dough Ornaments and Tags
Week 3:  Customized Coffee Mugs

Just a reminder that today is Homemade Living Wednesday.  This week, you can visit: Tammy at Our Neck Of The WoodsJackie at Born Imaginative, and Mary at Homegrown On The Hill 

Next week I'll be posting to the series along with  Daisy at Maple Hill 101 and Sue at The Little Acre That Could.

that is a great idea! I saw a delivery idea of a hostess gift of a bottle of wine with a towel wrapped around it...this is a great approach to that towel!
