Button Art


I am a big fan of buttons. I have done a few different art projects with them, and have so many more I want to do! After raiding my mom’s button collection (thanks Mom!), I turned to my friends and their moms. When I needed still more colors/variety, I started asking around at garage sales. You might be surprised by how many people say, “Well I do have a lot of buttons in the house – I never thought of putting them in the sale.” So ask, ask, ask!

Sidenote: Did you know that you can dye buttons? There is a great tutorial for it on the Rit Dye website here http://www.ritdye.com/diy-projects/odds-ends/dyed-buttons

So grab some canvas, buttons, and your hot glue gun and let those creative juices flow!
