This is a little picture I made on Friday night for Miss M's bedroom. I enjoyed spending time choosing my prettiest pink buttons. To make it, I simply drew a heart shape, lightly in pencil, onto a piece of card stock and then stuck the buttons inside the heart using strong all purpose glue. I left it to dry for an hour and then popped the picture into a frame with the glass removed.
More button fun yesterday when I made this little stuffed felt heart. I love the spring colours of the buttons here and I think they look nice against the soft green of the felt. It is happily hanging on my bedside table.
The little button tea light holder above was also so simple to make. I used a small glass tea light holder (mine came from Ikea) and glued a selection of red buttons around it, again using strong all purpose glue. A simple but satisfying little project.
Finally, after all that crafting you can't beat a cup of tea and even better if it's in a button mug...! I have enjoyed my button projects so much, I'm now on the look out for more, does anyone have any ideas they would like to share? I would love to know!
