I have a confession to make; I love buttons, especially bright colored ones. I go crazy like a pirate who’s just found treasure whenever I see buttons in craft shops. So it goes without saying I have a HUGE collection of buttons in all shapes, sizes, and colors! Now that I am a mom I can finally put them to use.
My 4-year old daughter and I love crafts involving buttons; we even do a lot of button crafts on playdates. Today I’ll be sharing 2 button craft burlap canvases that will brighten up your child’s room. They are super easy to make and what’s more your child can help too!
DIY Burlap Button Flower Garden Wall Art
- 2 small burlap canvases, mini measuring approx. 4”x6”.
I initially intended to make a button frame too but later decided against it.
- Liquid glue/hot glue
- Bright colored buttons in different sizes
To make the frames:
These canvases are pretty straightforward and easy to make. For the first canvas, I simply wrote out my daughter’s name “Kriti” with the smallest size buttons I had in my stash.
I chose one color family for each alphabet and moved from lighter to darker colors from top to bottom.
Once I was satisfied with the placement I simply stuck the buttons in place with liquid glue and set it aside to dry.
Miss K helped me make the second canvas, we wanted to create a bright and happy flower garden.
She picked the colors and I did the layout of the flowers, taking care to align the holes on the buttons in the same direction. We also added a button butterfly. Kriti insisted on adding 3 stars which, in my opinion, were totally unnecessary, it was meant to be a sunny afternoon scene! But you can’t really reason with a 4-year-old so I let them stay.
We had a great time making these and both of us love how they turned out!
