I have seen some really cute button projects on line recently and they have spoken to my button loving heart. I grew up loving to play in my mother's button box. It seemed more like a treasure box when I was a little girl. I have my own button box, but it doesn't seem nearly as magical as her's did to me as a child. (I think there were a lot more interesting buttons back then.) When I decided to make this Easter Button Bunny, it gave me a good reason to buy more buttons! Maybe my button box will become a magical thing for my grandchildren eventually. My bunny came out pretty cute! Here is how I did it.
I can't stress enough that you should print the shape in the color of button you will be using. When you put round things next to each other, there will be gaps. I guess just white as the background could work, but I didn't want to take the chance.
I was surprised to see the large assortment of buttons that you can get on Amazon! Look at these! They would really add interest to my button box! Or, here is a pack of 105 multi-colored buttons! And, here is one more choice with Ladybugs, stars, bears and circles.
You can make your own yarn pom-pom, I just happened to have this one. If you are doing a smaller bunny, like the white example, I found a bag of pom-poms at DollarTree that will work great!
Let the glue dry a bit, then put the picture in your frame. Of course, you can't put in the glass because of the buttons and the tail! I think it came out pretty adorable!
So, go play in the button box and try your hand at a Spring-time picture! You still have time before Easter!
Speaking of Easter, Ever get the feeling that the holidays pass you by so quickly that it's just a blur of chocolate and chaos? I know I do. We get in the habit of of going through the motions of a typical Easter without slowing down to think about what we're really celebrating. Well, this year I'm determined to make each holiday count, and I found the perfect way to do it for Easter this year. The Dating Divas have a countdown to Easter, and the best part? It's full of Christ-Centered traditions (and it's adorable, too)! If you want some ideas to keep the message of Christ's Resurrection in the forefront of your families minds, the Dating Divas have some great ideas. You can check them out here.
