Well one day i came across a button tree, it was so lovely i wanted to try to make something alike.
You don't need much:
- Canvas board
- Colorfull buttons
- Simple clear all purpose glue
- Brown acrylic paint
I started actually with out-lining the tree with pencil, just to be sure because my dyeing skills aren't that good developed. After i was pleased with the shape i painted it.
My girls enjoyed themselves sorting buttons by color, i have a big box full of buttons, some of my mom and grandmother, some bought, swapped... the girls task was to find purple,blue,green,yellow,orange,red and pink buttons.
The trees i found on pinterest had all colors together, i thought it would also look good to keep the colors seperated so we made a rainbow tree.
Each branch got it's own color.
We just glued the buttons on the canvas
And we ended up with a colorfull family piece of art!
