Snow Day Sheriff Badge DIY

It's winter and those snow days are here. Days where kids rejoice because there is no school, and parents wonder how are they going to keep these kids busy all day? Here's a simple snow day sheriff badge DIY that is made from items around the house already.

Here's what you need.
Modge Podge
Gold or silver paint
Clasp pin

Here's what you need to do

First draw sketch a star onto your cardboard. Then cut it out. Then draw another one that is smaller than the first one. Cut it out. And then draw five circles. And of course cut them out. You'll end up with something like this.

Next glue the small star on top of the larger star. And then the circles in the five points.

Next paint the cardboard with silver or gold paint. I used glitter paint.

Now use that sharpie to write the word sheriff on the star.
And finally glue a clasp pin onto the back.
And you have a sheriff badge for your snow day sheriff.

  2. These are super cute! My husband is a retired sheriff's deputy. These would be fun to make with our younger grandkids!

  3. What did use the Mod Podge on? Was it to seal this?
