December Daily Craft, 3

Mistletoe is for Lovers
How to Make a Button Mistletoe: 1) Go to The Walmart (craft dept)... you need a styro ball (mine is 3") and straight pins with red balls and white balls (no blueballs please). 2) Pin a sturdy ribbon on. See instructions below. 3) Layer 1: (I used the red pins for this layer) Pin your biggest green buttons (just jab em right thru the button hole into the ball), edge-to-edge all over the styroball. When the buttons have a curved-in side, place that against the ball (it will hug the ball that way). 4) Layer 2: Using your white pins and smaller buttons, cover all the spots/gaps where you can see the styrofoam still. 5 - Call your hottie into the room and giver a try ;)
More versions of this button project coming thru December. A village of them even!
