Button Snowflakes

Today's ornament is a cute little snowflake made out of buttons!

Last year I bought a beaded snowflake kit for our kids to make up during Christmas break. Well...they weren't that big of a hit. The beads were really hard to put on and then they wouldn't stay on! So I packed it all away for another day. And that day came! Here are the metal forms:

I grabbed my button bag and picked out a bunch of small white buttons. Then I plugged in the glue gun and waited for it to heat up. Kat kept herself busy with the button bag:

Once the glue was ready to go, I hot glued buttons to each side of the metal frame. Here's the result:

Maybe a little wobbly, but I think it's pretty cute! And no two snowflakes are alike, right?
