Craft♥Advent, Day 16: Button Frame

Who doesn’t love a framed picture of their loved ones?! Perfect for grandparents and family, this is a very simple and pretty gift that even relatively small children can make…

You need: plain frames (Ikea do a great selection), strong PVA glue/Mod Podge, lots and lots of flat buttons!

Put a layer of glue on the frame, and arrange your buttons in random colour and size all around it.

The variations on this are endless: all one colour, symmetrical arrangement, a few buttons on the top, bottom and sides, or on the corners…

Tomorrow, I’ll be making another decorated frame, but for now I’ll leave you with my finished framed picture of my beautiful niece, Erica:
