25 Days of Handmade Christmas: Day 13

I found this idea on Pinterest, and tracked it back to this a blog by Leslie Asche found here. There was no tutorial, so I figured I'd put one together for you (not that it's that difficult, but in case you wondered).

Materials
1. Buttons, lots and lots of buttons (I ended up using way more than I expected).
2. Push pins. At least 100.
3. A styrafoam ball.
4. Jute, ribbon, string, etc.

I started to type this out step-by-step, but it was insulting. Really. You guys are smart, so basically, just cover the ball by attaching buttons with the push-pins.

Attach some sort of ribbon, string, yarn, or twine to hang the ornament and you're finished!
