You may or may not know, that I am a terrible hoarder and this year, I have been trying really hard to “use things up”, along come these lovely button snowflakes, perfect winter crafts for kids and a great way to use up some of my craft hoard. I saw Thrifty Fun’s snowflakes on pinterest and thought, ooh that could look nice with buttons too. Then click through and saw that she did it with buttons as well! Ha. But there you go, a classic kids snowflake craft after all! And here plus2point4 did a colourful set. Bet the kids would like that too!
Materials: 3 popsicles, white paint, glue, an assortment of white (ish) buttons
(Find lots of WHITE BUTTONS here – affiliate links –
1) I glued the popscicles together and let dry (a hot glue done, does this very quickly for you, but PVA will work too)
2) The kids the painted them white (they wanted to paint both sides, so we let them dry and then painted the other side the next day
3) Once try they selected their buttons and stuck them on. Interestingly Red Ted picked all the clear ones and the large yellow-y ones, Pip Squeak went for small ish buttons.
4) Glue on some ribbon for hanging and write the kids name and dates on the back.
We will be giving two away (Opapa and Nonni will be the lucky recipients this time) and keeping two for our tree!
