Button wreath ornaments

It's almost Christmas and I figure most of you are probably finished with your holiday projects or out of town away from your computer altogether. Merry Christmas! But, for those of you still hanging around needing something to do with your kids, here you go:
I saw these cute little ornaments last year and filed the idea away for future use. I'm glad I did. These were so simple. Perfect for another one of our afternoons confined to the apartment. The kids enjoyed making them (they strung all their own buttons and chose ribbon), and they look super cute hanging on the tree or just about anywhere. Also a great way to use up old buttons if you have too many ugly buttons hanging around. Of course, if you just have the ugly ones, you may want to get a little pack of holiday or brightly colored buttons to mix in.
See Martha Stewart and Me and My Girl for tutorials and more cute examples.
