Today, I am going to share another Pinterest inspired project that I
This was one of those projects where I sat and thought, "why didn't I think of that!". It was extremely simple, wasn't the fastest project, but I completed it while watching a little TV one night so the time went by fairly easy.
Most of the supplies I already had a on hand:
(1) 5x7 white frame (mine is from target)
A scrap piece of burlap
Hot glue gun
I did have to purchase some buttons, which I found on sale at Joann Fabrics (50% off). I bought several different sizes and shades of white and pink buttons. The buttons cost me about $6.00 and I had plenty leftover.
I went through my font library and found a "C" I liked and printed it off. Once printed, I cut the "C" out and placed it in the middle of my burlap fabric. I traced the "C" with a pencil. It was a faint line but it was enough to give me a template.
Then I just randomly placed the buttons until I liked the arrangement, gluing them as I went along. I wasn't able to place the glass back in the frame due to the height of the buttons. If you wanted to add the glass you would want to find a deeper frame setting.
My sister in law loved it! This project only cost me $6.00 since I already had most of the supplies on hand. I can't wait to make one for Baby Burgess - first we need to find out the gender, then we still need to figure out a name. I never knew picking a name would be so hard!!
Have you created any Pinterest inspired projects lately? If so, I would love to see it!!
