Button Ornaments with Kids plus a GIVEAWAY to stuff your stocking!

I have a great ornament to make with your kids today.  Also, don’t miss a great stocking stuffer giveaway at the bottom of this post.  If you love craft supplies, you don’t want to miss this one.  First let’s talk about my button ornaments.  Well these are actually my son’s designs.  So I know they are perfect for kids cause they are designed and made by one!  

I have a large tub of buttons so I broke those out for him to dig through.  He started placing them in configurations on some wooden circles I had from Consumer Crafts.  He came up with a wreath and his initial as his two ornaments.  We broke out some paint from Decoart and painted both wood circles.  


The initial version was painted with a silver metallic from Decoart on both sides.  Allow to dry then hot glue on buttons in a letter shape.  Punch hole and add ribbon.

The wreath ornament was given a coat of green paint then a coat of green glitter paint (both from Decoart).  Then the “wreath” and “berry” buttons were glued on with hot glue.  Punch a hole and add ribbon.

These are both quick and simple.  A fun project with kids of all ages.  Maybe your kids with come up with a different button layout?  Stripes?  Dots?  A tree?  Let their imaginations run wild this holiday season.

    I would make something hands on with my 2 and 3 year old students,probably after the holidays…winter themed or Valentine’s Day gifts, perhaps?

    It’s so cool that your son designed these! In my opinion those are always the best ornaments. :)

    If I won, I’d make some Christmas dioramas I’ve been thinking about!
