DIY Button Snowflakes

Posted by Samantha Dlugosh on

Add some kid-friendly decoration to your home with these button snowflakes.

Materials:

  • Popsicle sticks
  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • a variety of buttons
  • ribbon or fishing line

Instructions

  1. Glue three Popsicle sticks together to make the snowflake shape, one on top of the other.
  2. Arrange the buttons on the snowflake so you get an idea of where you want them to go. Once you have decided, glue them on the snowflake. Use as little or as many as you wish! Remember, each snowflake is unique!
  3. To finish, tie a piece of fishing line or ribbon on the snowflake so you can hang them! These look lovely displayed in a window where they can catch light.
