Heart Art, Part 2 - Buttons

Yesterday I shared the first part of this, the stacked heart art. But it was this image I had in my mind when I bought the frames, this was the project I knew I would create...

Here are the materials:
  • 5" x" 5" Frame
  • Heart shape to use as a template
  • Square of burlap
  • black paper
  • Buttons
  • White glue
Step 1, mount the burlap to the black paper:

 

Step 2, then tack the template to the burlap:
 

Step 3, start gluing the buttons onto the burlap using the white glue:

 
 
Step 4, finish gluing the buttons on:
 
Step 5, remove the template and check to make sure you're happy with the way the buttons have filled in and make any adjustments you want.


Step 6, pop into the frame and enjoy

 

$2.50 spent on it, and I love it.
Tomorrow, the 3rd and final in the Heart Art Collection and then I've got to figure out where to put them.

  2. I never would have thought of using the cut out heart for a pattern. I woulda tried to free-hand it and ugliness would have followed. Yours looks great! I even love that frame! Thanks for the comment and for stopping by my blog!
