Bonus “Pin”spiration

I completed two pintrest projects this week, so I guess I might as well post the other one as a bonus pin.  As I mentioned earlier this week I have been searching for buttons to do a couple of the projects. I finally had enough to do one of the projects.

This project starts with a Styrofoam ball (the bigger the size, the more buttons you will need). You can choose to paint the Styrofoam ball if you want, or you can just start using straight pins to attach buttons.  I went with red, white and green buttons (in various shades) for this particular ornament.  Use different sized buttons and build out to cover the entire ball.  It takes a lot of buttons and pins to cover even a pretty small ball.  Then, choose a ribbon and attach it to the top of your ornament for hanging.  I attached mine with hot glue.  I really want to make versions of these ornaments in different team colors – purples for k-state fans, red and black for spartan fans, etc.  I’ll just have to keep shopping for more buttons!

I love how this turned out...
