Holiday Button Art
Activity DesignerMelissa Allen
Decorating my home for the holidays is such a joy--especially when my children make the decor! These festive frames are so fun to make and would be a great holiday gift for someone special.
What You'll Need
How We Did It
My children love going through our button jar. I have collected so many different buttons. They love to dig through and look for different colors, sizes, and textures. This was a fun way to prepare for this craft since we needed quite a few buttons.
While the kids were sorting buttons, I traced the back of my picture frame onto a festive piece of paper.
This was a great project to use old frames we had. I love when something old can get a new life, especially because it teaches my kids to reuse and create instead of throw away. I wrote the word "Noel" with glue right on the frame's glass (You could also have the kids make pictures with glue. A Christmas tree would be fun.)
Emma got to work on adding the buttons. Each piece had a very special place on the frame. It was fun to see how she would choose which button went where.
