Lots of buttons - you can choose any colors
Craft Glue - I use craft glue because it dries clear
Pen or pencil - for tracing or drawing
Shape of something you want to create - I got a shamrock off the internet, printed and cut it out
First if you used a shape like I did you will need to cut it out. Otherwise you can draw out your shape with the pen or pencil.
Finally, using your glue and buttons start gluing! I used some buttons that were flat and some that had stem on the back. I also layered the buttons to cover any spots where the canvas was showing through.
It took me about an hour from start to finish!
You could do any shape - hearts for Valentine Day; bells or snowflakes for Christmas; Eggs or a cross for Easter; a leaf for the fall; a jack-o-lantern for Halloween, a turkey for Thanksgiving. Use your imagination!
You could even be color specific. I used buttons I had on-hand but you could buy color specific buttons; say orange and black for the Halloween Jack-O-Lantern.
If you've got lot's of buttons on hand I hope you give this easy craft a try!
Thanks for stopping by! Next week I'll be decorating for St. Patrick's Day.
