Glitter Button Ornament

I shared this 
Glitter Button Ornament 
tutorial last week at Sunny Vanilla for Jen's Homemade for the Holidays 
series.

Here's the finished ornament and below I'll tell you how easy it is to create.



I started with a styrofoam ball, pick any size you like.
I got out my button stash and picked out mostly green buttons and a few yellow. Again choose colors to your preference, I bet a multi colored ornament would be fantastic as well.
All you do is start hot gluing the buttons to the styrofoam ball, overlap where necessary for a layered effect. I added the yellow buttons last, I thought a little contrasting color looked nice.


Once I had the ball covered I added a really wide ribbon for the hanger and also glitterfied (made up word) it! I painted a light coat of Mod Podge over the buttons and then sprinkled the glitter on. Glitter makes everything better!


Now you're done! Easy, right?







Imagine, Improvise & Invent,

Sarah
