Thrifty Christmas; Gifts Under $5, Snowman Pin

This adorable little snowman pin was made using materials I already had on hand. So easy to make, so quick to do. These would be super simple to do in mass quantity! You could also change the snowman's personality with your ribbon scarf...and also to match the recipients personality!

Supplies Needed:
  • Sticky Pin Back
  • 2 White, 2 hole buttons in different sizes
  • 4 seed beeds or rhinestones (I used rhinestones for my example...what I had on hand)
  • Ribbon
  • All purpose Glue
  • Scissors
  • Toothpick
    Step One: Remove paper from sticky pin backing
Step Two: Apply buttons with the smaller button's holes going horizontally, and the large button's holes going vertically

Step Three: Squeeze glue onto a scrap piece of paper, and using your toothpick place a dab of glue over each button hole and place your rhinestones/seed beads.

Step Four: Fold your ribbon in half.
Step Five: Place ribbon behind pin back, around the neck area as shown above. Now pull the ends through the loop.
Step Six: Trim the end of the ribbon scarf with your scissors. Place a little glue on the side of the snowman body and glue the scarf ends down. Let dry!
