I shared some clear ornaments earlier using sprinkles, beads, ribbons, yarn confetti, poly-fil, and glitter.
I also shared this Card Rosette made from old Christmas cards.
This Snowman Ornament was fun to make.

A simple ornament idea that is child friendly~buttons on a string. I’m not sure it gets much easier than this! But, the finished wreath ornament is adorable and children could have fun making them. You’ll need an assortment of buttons, thread and ribbon. I used shades of red and white buttons for this one along with some sheer dotted ribbon.
Cut a length of thread for the size you’d like and string the buttons onto the thread. Tie the ends of the thread together and tie a loop of ribbon over the top for hanging. Tie a ribbon bow around the loop. That’s it. It’s such an easy little project that I wasn’t sure if I wanted to post it but I remember making these years ago, so I thought I’d pass it along.
To add a bit of a personal touch for children, they could write their name on a little tag, punch a hole in it and attach it to the string or to the ribbon.
I had an old Scrabble game that I’ve used for some projects before, so I selected the letters I wanted for these ornaments. I cut a strip from a sticky backed felt sheet to size to fit the scrabble tiles and placed them on the felt. I thought hot glue might keep them from being flat against the felt. Then I added a loop and some jingle bells to the back with hot glue.
