button snowflakes -- these are very cute; I'm envisioning it being kind of tricky to glue onto the wire, though. I'm wondering if I can do something similar with white-painted wooden coffee stirrers. Maybe that way I can do the middles with hot glue and the kids can do the rest with white glue? Hmm...

Why didn't I think of this? Use a Low Temperature Hot Glue Gun to Make Snowflakes on your Windows! If you are afraid that they will be hard to remove, you could always spray pam on a cookie sheet, make the designs on there and then just adhere them to the windows afterwards. That way they're reusable too!
Use a simple, decent sized image. Place wax paper over template. Cover wax paper with dish detergent mixed with water. Trace image using a continuous stream of glue. Dry, peel from paper. If paper sticks, run under cold water. Add more glue to any weak spots. Cover with Mod Podge. Cover with glitter. Add a hanger.
This is a great way to bring the outdoors in. Attach the snowflakes onto clear filimant and suspend from the ceiling with Master Command mini christmas light hooks. The more strands the greater the impact in a space. This is a great idea for kid playrooms, the dining room, even the front entryway.
If you're drawn to vintage style and antiques, chances are you have a jar or two of pretty old buttons. With just a little wire and a few tools, you can make an easy button pendant. Here, I'll show you how to wire-wrap buttons with a technique that can also be used for lampwork discs and other flat components.
Canvas Button Letters: I decided to sit down and make these for my four roommates and they turned out amazing! I can't sew that well, and they still look great!
