Another day and another opportunity to create something from my Pinterest Board for Christmas
. If you missed yesterdays post, here
Today I decided to try one of these crafty ideas:
|unfortunately picture only - no site to credit|
I like the layered look of the top picture but don't have the scrabble tiles so decided to use a button as in the bottom picture.
I started with an old painting that was stashed in the back of the cupboard. I bought this painting for a song years ago when we were struggling to make ends meet and I really wanted to jazz up our home.
It no longer has a place in our home but the frame is quite fancy so when hubby was talking about disposing of it, I decided to hang on to it a bit longer. Now is the time to use it.
Out with the jar of buttons I purchased earlier this year. You never know when you are going to need oodles of button .....LOL.....and thats all the excuse I need to buy them by the bag full from Spotlight whenever I happen to find myself there (not often)
tip them all out on the table and rummage through them for suitable sizes. I am having fun already
Now I do have scrapbook paper but not a great deal and certainly nothing to suit this project, but what I do have is heaps and heaps of fabric in my stash and I picked a red one which I ironed onto some stiff interfacing. Then I tried out some xmas tree shapes and designs.
I glued the fabric ontop of the painting in the frame and then glued the buttons on. Here is what I ended up with.......LOVE IT!
Just Saying.....because I can't stop looking at it hung up on the wall.
Love, love, love it .... I want one too - another project to add to my list. At least I have a lot of buttons to choose fromReplyDelete
