Cute as a Button

Who says pumpkins can’t pull off polka dots? Bet you’ve got a bunch of buttons that remain unclaimed­­–t­he more mismatched, the better!

Supplies:

  • Buttons
  • Hot glue gun


Instructions:
1. Apply hot glue to the back of a button and adhere it to the pumpkin’s surface. Hold in place for 5 to 10 seconds to secure. Playful polka dots don’t need a specific order, so have fun sticking them wherever you please.

2. Set aside to dry for at least 24 hours.
