Today we have a fun little Christmas craft for you and it is cute as a button! Okay, that last joke was pretty bad. But, it's true! Button art is one of the hottest trends right now and pictures like the one above (designed by artist Vicky Cockell) can sell for around 500 buckaroos. You however, can save your cash and make your own for under $10 (or maybe even for free depending on what materials you have lying around the house.) For this project you will need... - A frame - A piece of card stock or other stiff paper (make sure it is the right size for the frame) - Glue gun or strong craft glue - Buttons, buttons, and more buttons! (you can buy large jars of mixed buttons for cheapo at Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and JoAnn's) Directions... 1. If you are artistically inclined, feel free to go ahead and sketch out your design. Or you can take the easy route and print off a silhouette of your design on your card stock. (You may want to print off a sample on regular paper first just to make sure that it comes out the size that you want.) We have included a few of our favorite silhouette finds below. However, if you are looking for something different, just type the name of the image you are looking for followed by "silhouette" into your search engine (for example: reindeer silhouette.) To use any of the following images, just click and print. 2. Once you have printed your silhouette onto the card stock it is time to start the fun part - adding the buttons! It's a good idea to play around with placement before you start gluing. Also, feel free to layer the buttons for a neat, textured effect. To get a really neat look, add some silver and gold buttons! These really help to make the other colors pop! And remember, you can also use items that aren't buttons for fillers such as decorative brads, pearls, beads, or rhinestones. 3. Once your buttons are glued, pull any whispies off if you used a hot glue gun and then frame your masterpiece for all to see! Oh, and one more thing... Send us your button creations so we can show them off! We love seeing the creative work that ya'll do! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Now go get craft! ~ Your Friends at Faulkner's Here's a tip: Adding in silver and gold buttons makes it really pop! Also, I picked out round things (to add to the repeating element of circles) that weren't buttons to include in my work. For example, you can use decorative brads, pearls, beads, or rhinestones (some examples are below).
