Last week I decided to upgrade to the new windows. There are some things I really like but other things I do not. The windows button on the keyboard doesn't seem to work any longer for whatever reason. I can't copy/control V to paste I have to make links. I also had a hard time finding how to download pictures but I finally got it.
With all the football happenings this past week - GO BRONCO'S! I stayed away from television on Sunday and really got my craft on.
Today I'll share a cute button craft and I'll show you 2 ways to do it.
So lets start with the end result!
This is what you'll need to make these.
Buttons - I bought 2 packages of red buttons at Walmart
Canvas - I got 1 that is burlap and another plain white canvas
Glue gun - I recommend it over craft glue if you use a burlap canvas
Pen/pencil to outline the template
For starters place your template on the canvas. I got these at the dollar store. I like them because they aren't the typical heart AND look at the glitter... I mean come on LOVE.
After you have laid out your heart and traced around it now you just start gluing.
I dumped all the buttons out and laid out the larger ones first. I just started gluing!
TIP - layer, layer, layer your buttons!
TIP - when working with small buttons put the glue on the canvas NOT the buttons.
Here is the finished products again.
On the white one I did 2 hearts overlapping and then only outlined the hearts.
I only burned myself a few times with the hot glue gun - BONUS!
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate it.
Come by next week and see what other crafts I made for Valentine's Day - hint - more heart art.
