Bauble Snowflakes



and slightly elegant–don’t you think? This little Christmas craft is one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in a while. In fact, it was a bit addicting…so beware!

If you have a moderate stash of random buttons–like I do–you’ll likely end up with a dozen new ornaments in a very short amount of time. I’m talking like 20 minutes or so.

Beat that.

Start with popcicle sticks. The long ones are fine, but I LOVE the little short ones the very best. I found them at JoAnn’s a few months ago, and to tell the truth, I bought them just because they were just so darn cute!

Glue the sticks together in an asterisk shape. The first time around, we only used 3 sticks–but then we went back and added a fourth. They were more snowflakey that way. See for yourself.

Glue buttons on the sticks in whatever color patterns work for you. I used Elmer’s glue because you know how deadly the glue gun is in SOME people’s hands and since I wasn’t actually interested in spending Christmas in the burn unit–I just left the creepy thing alone.

But of course, you can choose for yourself.

Watch out though…

You may just get carried away…

like we did.

  1. Pretty sure that with each one I saw I thought, “Ooooh, that one is my favorite. No wait, I really like that one. Shoot there’s a white one… I can’t decide!” Glad I don’t have to 😉

  2. I love them! I am a new Brownie leader this and the girls will be involved in a Christmas bazaar and these would be great for the girls to make. TFS

  3. These are really cute, a neat idea. I just came across a box of buttons I didn’t even know I had. Now I know what to do with them!

  4. I’ve just begun to look for something my grandkids can make for teachers and others for christmas and this looks very promising thank you for posting.
