Who doesn't love buttons? They are cute, colorful and clothing would be a lot different without them. High five to whoever invented buttons!
In this craft I'll show you how to take buttons and turn them into marijuana leaf wall art
Supply List Includes:
- A Butt Tonne of Buttons (I chose varying shades of green)
- Glue (I use Tacky Glue brand)
- Paint and Paint Brush
- Cannabis Leaf Template (or if you can just draw a leaf free hand)
I started off by painting my canvas a pretty purple and letting it dry
Then I cut out my marijuana leaf template and lightly traced it on my painted canvas
Then I sorted all my buttons into three piles consisting of small size, medium sized, and large sized buttons
I arranged my buttons before I started gluing to get an idea of how it would look. I started by doing the outline of the leaf with my buttons then working my way towards the middle of the leaf.
Then I started gluing them down and creating my first layer of buttons, trying to leave as little space inbetween the buttons as possible. It's like creating a puzzle and getting all the buttons to fit together
To cover the button gaps in my first layed I create a second layer of buttons to fill the gaps and then glued them down as well
There we go! All done, this craft is easy but a bit time consuming, totally worth it though. This canvas turned out as cute as a button!
