Now that Winter is here you will be spending more time inside and what a better way to pass the time than to make a fun and festive craft! These snowflake button ornaments are not only easy to make but don’t cost a lot either. This is a great gift for a family member no matter what holiday they celebrate or make one for yourself! The best part of all is you don’t need to hang it on a tree! These fun snowflakes can be hung on a window, a car rearview mirror, a refrigerator or any place you can think of! Get creative by using different colored buttons or a variety of the same colors. It’s up to you, design it for the person with their favorite colors in mind or yours! Here’s how you make it.

What you’ll need:

  • Craft sticks
  • Buttons – most people have a secret collection but they can be purchased at any craft store
  • Glue – wood glue or kids can use a low heat glue gun (with parents supervision)
  • Twine, string or ribbon for hanging

You can either go with natural wood craft sticks or get the precolored ones. You can match the button colors or make a rainbow assortment.

If you go choose natural wood, first color the craft sticks and let them dry completely. Magic markers work great!

Apply buttons onto your sticks. Start with a large one in the center and work outwards from there. Use the low temperature glue gun to glue the buttons to the sticks or wood glue.

Cut a piece of twine or string and hot glue it to the back of your stick to hang. All done!
