Button Christmas Tree Cookies (Tutorial)

To make Button Christmas Tree cookies you will need:

  • Christmas tree-shaped Cookies (cutter used)
  • Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • Light Brown 10-Second Glaze
  • White 10-Second Glaze
  • Green 10-Second Glaze
  • Red 10-Second Glaze
  • Parchment paper
 You'll need to make the button glaze transfers a day ahead of time.
Just pipe large dots onto parchment paper.
 Allow to dry for about 1 hour.
Poke two holes in the center (to resemble button holes) with a decorating tip.

Allow the buttons to dry overnight before gluing them onto the tree.

Outline and flood tree with either brown or white glaze.
Add lines with corresponding colors to give a wood grain effect wet-on-wet.
 Allow the trees to dry overnight.

Next day, "glue" buttons onto tree with a dot of glaze on the back.

Add a small line across the two button holes to resemble thread.

You're so sweet, Georganne. :) Thanks for the blessing you are. I often feel very isolated in this cookie world. You bring me such joy.

Yes, I started glaze transfers a couple months back. It was kind of an experiment and I found it worked! So I've been trying to incorporate them ever since.

We're always a work in process, huh?

I wish you and your family a very very Merry Christmas! :) ♥♥♥♥
