button crafts for kids: notecardI love these button notecards, and there’s even a printable notecard template to make this button craft for kids that much easier!

button crafts for kids: antelope headThis faux antelope head with buttons is amazing! Can you believe it was made by elementary school students? I want to make one for my own home!

button crafts for kids: braceletThis ribbon and button bracelet tutorial makes a lovely piece a jewelry and even little ones can do this button craft for kids with big, dull needles and buttons with bigger holes.

button crafts for kids: hot air balloonI looked everywhere for the source of this button hot air balloon scrapbook page (it’s all over Pinterest) but I can’t find it! I love this scrapbook page and it’s definitely something kids could do. I think it would be great  in a shadowbox frame!

button crafts for kids: monogram artPrint out a big capital letter and let kids go to town gluing buttons over it. Frame the whole thing and you’ll end up with monogram art made from buttons!

button crafts for kids: wire treeFind a printable tree template and make it into a button craft for kids. Have them glue the buttons on as leaves for an adorable gift from a child!

button crafts for kids: button garlandThis button garland that’s used to adorn gifts is a fantastic way to dress up plain wrapping paper! It can also be draped for decoration. The tutorial instructs the user to crochet, but I think braiding is a way to make it a simpler button craft for kids.

button crafts for kids: wire button treeA wire button tree like this one will likely require some extra help from an adult, but it’s definitely something kids can do. Twist wire to form the frame of a tree. Put the “trunk” into a spool and have the kids weave the wire ends through the button holes.

button crafts for kids: button Christmas tree ornamentI think this button Christmas tree ornament is adorable! Here’s the button Christmas tree ornament tutorial.
