Someone would make a ton of money selling red buttons. Seriously, when making these button hearts on canvas, all I kept thinking was, where do I get more button? Someone needs to sell buttons in bulk for cheap, like really cheap. Doing projects like this is hard to do otherwise. Laurenne and I went to four stores searching for enough buttons just to create this craft. All we wanted was some buttons in pinks and reds. Is that too much to ask of a craft store?
Luckily, it all worked out. We spent an afternoon meticulously lining up buttons to make hearts on a black canvas and then hot glueing them down. I would love to take all the credit for these button hearts, but Laurenne really has the better artistic eye. My hearts would be a lot more abstract. The hardest part was finding the right balance between little buttons and big buttons.
I’ve done something similar, but I drew the heart and glued them in a huge clump I tread of tryin to line them up! I didn’t have that much patients 🙂
