Christmas is my favorite time of year: the family time, the music, the food, and most of all the Christmas decorations. Sadly, whether I like it or not, it all comes down on New Year’s Day.
I find it rather depressing.
When my grandmother passed away, I received her sewing basket. A little while ago, I was looking through there and found a large amount of vintage buttons.
I used some of them to make a button ornament for Christmas, but I decided to use the rest of them for a Valentine’s Day project.
Here is what you will need:
- A frame (mine was on clearance at Michael’s)
- Some spray paint (if you want to paint your frame)
- A small piece of fabric (my red velvet came from Micheal’s using their 50 % off coupon)
- Some buttons, and
- A glue gun
First I sprayed my frame with two coats of spray paint.
I took the back of my frame and covered it with the fabric. Being lazy … I just taped it to the back of the frame.
Then you just start hot-gluing your buttons inside of your chalk outline.
There is no wrong or right way to do this, I just tried to use different types of buttons spread evenly across.
That is it! Super simple!
I love that not only do I have a fun, new decoration that I can use every year, but it will also remind me of my grandma every time I see it.
