Simple Button Snowman {Ornament & more}


Crafting around the holidays is a favorite pastime of mine but doing simple crafts is even better... I mean, when the kids come home from school wanting to make cards, bags, gifts, etc... for their teachers and friends {and every single person they know}, it's good to have simple crafting ideas on hand, am I right?! Since it's the season of making and giving, what's better than using everyday items to create nice and personalized gifts?


For these simple snowmen {snow people?}, you'll need:
  • White buttons, many sizes
  • Colored yarn, string or strips of fabric {for the scarf}
  • A hot glue gun
  • Puff paint {eyes & buttons}
What you'll do:
  • Simply arrange the buttons so that the large button is on the bottom, a medium button in the middle and the smallest button on top.
  • Hot glue the buttons together 
  • Either glue, tie or wrap the scarf on the snowman
  • Add eyes and buttons
  • Once dry, add your cute snowman to a bag, a larger letter, a piece of paper or cardstock or simple hang on your tree as an ornament. 
The possibilities are endless for how you can use these simple button snowmen... Christmas gift bags or cards anyone? 

Oh, and it's super easy for kids to make!
