Button Wreath Christmas Ornament Craft Kit
These button ornaments are so cute and very easy to make. I have a small craft business in which I use a lot of buttons. In fact, thay are even printed on my business cards. This little ornament was a perfect gift for aquaintences I wanted to acknowledge during the Christmas holiday,

We LOVE this craft! The buttons had holes that very easily fit over the chenille, and the bow came pre-tied and is of lovely quality.
The only thing I would change is perhaps having more even numbers of white and red so that a 'pattern' of colors can be continued for the entire wreath.

This item was purchased by my daughter for kids with special needs, and it was a huge hit. The kids were able to make them, and they love it!

Great for 2nd grade Christmas project
Bought this for 2nd grade classroom project for their Christmas Trees. It kept them busy for a long time. Had to use a glue gun for putting the ribbon on. My blind student was able to string some buttons on the small pipe cleaner before she needed help. Overall it was well received by the class.

Loved This Craft
We used these at my 4 and 6 year old daughters Christmas tea party and they were a great craft for all ages. The span of ages in attendance was 3-9 and they all really enjoyed it and it was also the party favor to go home with. A little tip if you don't want buttons falling all over the floor, we put the craft on to a paper plate with sides for each one and that was like a little work station at each seat and kept it all nicely contained! highly recommend!

Was Easy for my 2 and 3 yr old
Id purchased these to do as a craft with my 3 year old and her pre k class. Each child seemed to do ok with them, but many of the children complained about too many green buttons and not enough red or white.(20+ green, 7 white,11 red) Also, there were not enough buttons to adequately fill the pipe cleaner, so scissors and glue will be needed to finish this wreath. The buttons also come in two different sizes, so this further complicated matters with the small children. Parental guidance is needed for this project.

This is a great fine motor craft for children of all ages.
I am a pre-school teacher who is always looking for fun, age appropriate activities which strengthen fine motor skills as well as are cognitively challenging. This holiday craft meets all the needs of the classroom. I recommend this craft.

not enough buttons sent; not enough variety in colors
We only received maybe 5 white buttons and a ton of green buttons. Red buttons seemed appropriate. Having to go to craft stores to seek out more buttons. But craft will do for 1st graders.

Great Hand Eye Coordination Craft
I used these with 3 and 4 year olds. Great lacing practice. Instead of gluing on the ribbon and adding the loop on the top, I just look the pipe cleaner and weaved it through the bow and tied it down. Then I just twisted the remaining pipe cleaner to make a loop. Gluing was a pain, I don't have much patience for if. I think using a glue dot would work better. The craft is smaller that I thought it would be, but if it was bigger or had more pieces I think it would frustrate my preschoolers. It was a great project.
