How we did it:

Materials List

  1. thumb tacks
  2. craft glue
  3. buttons
  4. cardboard
  1. If your tacks came on a piece of cardboard, then you're set! Ours came in a plastic box.

  2. We didn't want any fingers getting poked or tables getting scratched, so we cut a bit of cardboard and folded it in half. We added a bit of glue at the end, to keep it folded.

  3. Maddie dug into our buttons, and started putting together her designs.

  4. She glued those together, then glued them to the tacks.

  5. We let them dry, checking them to make sure they weren't gluing to the cardboard, or sliding off the tacks.

  6. Then they were done! So cheerful and bright!
