A Happy Button Ornament

My favorite ornaments on the tree 
are the ones the girls make.
So every year I make sure to have a 
couple ornament crafts.

Our first one this year was inspired by this picture I saw on Pinterest.

So happy!

We gathered our supplies:

 I loved this craft because it was super easy and the girls didn't need my help.

 After the balls went flying a few times, we realized it was easier to keep them steady in a glass.

I quickly realized that little sharp pins and Maggie 
were not a good combo.
So I improvised for her.

She was just happy to play with the buttons.

Definitely adds a bit of happy to the tree!

Hope you have a happy and colorful day!
