When I was little my grandmother would let me make little Christmas ornaments made from buttons. The theory was you would string a stack of buttons, biggest to smallest, on a bit of yarn. The resulting shape was a little like a tree. This Google translation of a tutorial by Fabi is for a clay version of the same process with way hipper colours than the ones I used!
