The Giving Tree!

 I found this idea on Pinterest, but thought it was a long shot since my painting skills are pretty much non-existent, and the patience it would take to glue on all the buttons could potentially drive me crazy.  Alas, I had to give it a try.  I started with a blank canvas (thanks Kate), brown acrylic paint, and a jumbo box of assorted buttons.  Two hours later, this is what I ended up with:  
Naked tree!

And then....
Finished tree!
Very simple, and less frustrating than I imagined.

Now, cheers to a full week of school!
