I love these felt and fabric trees decorated with button baubles. It’s probably a craft to do with older children though as it looks a bit fiddly for toddlers to handle. (via Love and Lollipops)

In fact if you attached them with something slightly less sticky the recipients could remove them from the cards and hang them on their tree! (via Fireflies and Mud Pies)
