How to make a Button Craft Stick Snowflake
Glue 3 Craft Sticks into a Snowflake shape
1) I glued the popscicles together and let dry (a hot glue gun, does this very quickly for you, but PVA will work too – you just need to include drying times for this)
Paint the Craft Sticks White or Blue
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
Glue the Buttons onto Your Craft Stick Snowflakes
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!
