If you missed my post at Blissful and Domestic last week, I’m sharing it here with you today. We’ve been making a lot of ornaments in our house this holiday season. This one is perfect for the little ones in your life.
Red and green buttons in a variety of sizes
Cut your floral wire into a length that will make a circle paproximately 2 inches in diameter.
Make a loop at one end of the floral wire (this is so the buttons will not fall off while you thread them)
Thread the buttons onto the wire. My kids had a blast doing this. My daughter just HAD to have hers in a red, green, red, green pattern. She is VERY into patterns these days. My son just put them on every which way!
Leave a bit of wire at the end and twist the two ends together to form a circle.
Wrap a piece of red felt around the wire and adhere the ends together with glue. You could use ribbon for this step too. I went looking for red ribbon and didn’t have any in my stash so I used red felt leftover from my felt ribbon candy. I think the felt gives it a more luxurious look than ribbon would.
Hang your ornament on the tree front and center.
What types of ornaments are you making for your tree?
