Button and Wire Windblown Tree

Hello Makers!

Spring is about to spring...soonish (at least in the East Coast, that is); flowers bloom, birds come back, trees turn green. Well as it so happens, my tree has sprung too, except it sprouted green buttons and because it's so windy today, it has gotten a little windblown. 

Okay, hokie intro I know. My make today is a wire tree with green buttons for the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge 'button" theme for Mar. When I saw this I got excited because I have a lot of buttons of every color. My friend, who sews costumes, was destashing and gave me a ton of buttons, at the time, I had no idea what to do with them. I like making wire trees and have used beads as leaves see my wire tree blog post. So I thought I'd do the same with buttons.
