Button craft

So I was feeling mighty spunky with these random buttons I have. I mean, what the heck are you going to do with all these buttons?!

I decided to peruse the famous Pinterest to see if they could offer any fun, DIY projects. Behold, this lovely piece:

I had to try something similar to it. So I collected all my little buttons {ha! It's kind of cute when you say that!}, and an empty frame, and my ever-trusty Elmers glue.

Here we go...
  • Choose bright, fun, festive colored paper and size accordingly to the frame. I chose blue since it goes well with the theme of the room. 

  • Draw an outline of what you would like to say, or the shape (I did a heart)
**See above image
  • Using the glue, dot the outline of your shape.  

  • Fill your outline or shape with your lovely buttons. Then start filling the inside of your shape.

  • Once you have stuck all your buttons, allow it to dry, and insert into frame

  • Find a cute place to hang/set this treasure on
Easy as pie! And super cute! This button beauty has made it's debut in one of the rooms in my home- you'll just have to check back each week as we tour through my home to see where it ended up.

Fun fact: Many of these buttons belonged to my great-grandmother. I was honored to be able to use these as a decor in my home.

Stay crafty, friends!
