Button Heart

Well hello there!  I've got a quick craft to share with you today. 

My craft room walls still needed a little something so I found a small canvas and painted it blue with a red-ish heart on it. Simple enough right?

Then I wanted to add some texture and depth to it. So I added a base layer of red buttons using hot glue to keep them in place.

But it still needed more.  So I added a layer of colorful and fun shaped buttons.
                 GAG! I hated it! 
I know my stuff is far from professional but I'm pretty sure I could have made the same thing in the third grade.  BTW, I would have hated it then too.

In the end, I decided to keep it simple.  Just two layers of circular red buttons in various sizes, all held together with hot glue. 

Did you notice how that last picture is clear and bright?  I FINALLY got a Light Tent Kit! Not a bad pic for a cell phone right?  I think it made a big difference.  The next big purchase is a new camera.  Any suggestions?


  1. Wow! It looks wonderful! So simple and so amazing. THanks for this post!

  2. These are quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen!
