Button Snowflake Holiday Decoration | Craft Ideas | Craft Klatch

Here is an easy and beautiful winter craft idea with vintage flair! It's a button craft in the shape of a snowflake! It's a perfect holiday home decor idea!



Materials list: The links below are affiliate links. I may earn a small commission at no extra cost to you. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Snowflake: check Hobby Lobby - I could not find it online Buttons: https://amzn.to/2QcFfBb Glue: https://amzn.to/371LoHe Mod Podge dimensional: https://amzn.to/2tLIIzr Fine white glitter: https://amzn.to/2EH4GFV White paint: https://amzn.to/393T9ym Ivory paint: https://amzn.to/2Sp9ckx Pearl white paint: https://amzn.to/35Px2cY

Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made it:



Directions:

1.  I found this unfinished snowflake and thought I needed to make a cool decoration for winter or the holidays!


2.  I painted the snowflake white.

3.  I pulled out my button stash.

4.  I pulled out white and ivory buttons.

5.  Some of the buttons still had thread in them, so I had to go through and clean them up.  I bought them at an estate sale.

6.  I dipped the individual buttons into glue and placed them on the snowflake.




7.  Here is the first layer.  You will see that there are spaces between the buttons.  I added a second layer where there were large spaces.


8.  Because there were still spaces, I used the Dimensional Magic to fill them in and sprinkled fine glitter over it.


You can see the difference between the lower and upper part.

9.  I tapped the snowflake on the table and the excess glitter came off.

Here is a close up.



10.  I painted the edges with ivory and pearl white paint, just so it blended better with the buttons.


Here it is all finished and it would look great on a shelf of hanging on the wall!

That's it! Thanks for stopping by! Remember: Life's too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!
