To begin, place the cardboard on a table and trace around a glass or similar round object. You can also print out circles to trace. We used a 3 inch outer circle with a 2 inch inner circle to make our wreath ornament template. Cut the template out from the cardboard.

Start gluing the buttons in place using random size white buttons.

Next, glue down a second layer of randomly placed aqua buttons. Overlap them so you don’t see the cardboard template underneath. Now glue on the wood deer and gold stars.

Cut a piece of gold ribbon to 7 inches long. Loop it through the ornament and secure the ends with some hot glue. Cut a piece of aqua ribbon to 8 inches long. Tie it onto the gold hanging ribbon by making a simple knot. Trim both ends of ribbon on a slant. You can also tie pieces of aqua ribbon into small bows and glue onto the wreaths.

If you like to have your ornaments dangle from the branches, you should repeat the above steps. This will make sure you have buttons covering the cardboard on both sides. These Pastel Button Ornaments also make great additions to wrapped packages and holiday gift baskets!
