Reuse idea - Snowman using buttons!

A simple and creative snowman!

All you need is
  • Buttons of different sizes
  • Scraps
  • Sequins ( optional)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
For scarf, you can use construction paper or felt or any other scraps available. I used white, orange and red construction paper. Cut one and half inches long thin stripes. Stick them together and then, onto the cardstock.

Stick small button above the scarf and bigger button at the bottom as shown. Fold the scarf from one side and stick it using glue on the other side.

and its all done!!!!

Thanks for visiting and have a colorful day:)
