Button Tree Home Decor

Pinterest lead me a beautiful button tree. I set out to make one for my new bathroom. I had a hard time finding buttons and would pick them up wherever I saw some: Wal-mart, Joann's, Michaels, Meijer. I had a small collection going and had my husband cut me some of my pallet wood to create the piece.

It measures approximately 18" x 22". I made sure my pallet wood was nice and flat and held it together with screws and two vertical pieces on the back. I sorted my buttons into piles - brown and green/blue and laid out the design on the boards following the idea I found on Pinterest. I glued the buttons on the wood one-by-one with tacky glue (this task took about an hour). I let it dry and hung it in my bathroom.
