Crafting: White Button Frame (Tutorial)


The girls and I were at the fabric store and saw all these white buttons, and I thought it would be fun to make something with them--the buttons and the girls. So in a few minutes we made a white button picture frame.


This quick project required a simple picture frame (flat face), which spray paint, a hot glue gun and a bunch of buttons. We used white but this would be fun in multi-colors or monochromatic. Maybe we'll have to make some more.


First I took the glass out and spray painted the frame. When it was dry I spread out some paper on a table and plugged in the glue gun.


And then I let the girls help me place the buttons. They picked them and I dabbed the blue and then they placed them.


I might have massaged the spacing a bit....


And there it is. Our button frame. This would be really cute for Father's Day or Mother's Day, or any day really.

This is really cute - I've done this with my girls too but a little less organised.

I dolloped glue onto a red frame and they just put which ever buttons they wanted, where they wanted.

I think too much to create a "just done" look. They seemed to perfect it. I'll email it to you :)

Aw, so sweet!! Thanks for the idea, I'm often looking for ideas to keep my little niece busy when she visits. She loves crafts, and I think this is something she could do:)

I would have been tempted to use more buttons and layer them, but I think less is better!

@euabutter: Thank you. I am not sure where to direct you for a frame like this, but I would think a craft store and/or website would stock a simple white or wood frame with a flat face. IKEA sells many...
