Button Tree Art

This idea has been floating around Facebook and Pinterest for a while now, and over spring break, the girls finally had the opportunity to try it! I ordered stretched canvas and random assortments of buttons on Amazon, and used Aleene's Tacky Glue to make the buttons stick...for life. This stuff is strong! Tempera craft paint from Michael's stuck to the canvas just fine.

The girls spent a full afternoon painting their canvas, another day sorting through buttons and 2-3 days gluing the buttons for each of these projects. I love how unique each one is. There are unlimited possibilities for button tree art. I have 2 of them hanging up in our living room and the girls gave the other 2 to their Gramma for a birthday present. She hung them in her bedroom. They are a simple but beautiful way to decorate a room, and make great gifts! Whether they are done by a kindergartner or an adult artist, the results will be stunning!
