50 Button Crafts: idea #38 – button snowman

button snowmen by Urban Paisley

Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:

Fall really feels like it is here but when I look ahead I realize that Christmas isn’t that many weeks away. I want to spend the next few weeks exploring ideas that I might be able to give as gifts this Christmas, so here is the first one. These little snowmen are super simple and so effective with how they use the button holes on the top button to make mouth and eyes. I tried to find the original posting of this idea by Urban Paisley but google keeps blocking my access, so I don’t have a link. But the idea looks pretty simple and easy to replicate without instructions.

It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
