Buttons are not just for keep your closed. It can be magically turned into fascinating wall art with your imagination and creativity. Such as the button tree Ms Amanda has created with these small buttons over the pre-painted canvas. They look just fabulous hanging on the empty wall. Amanda used colorful spray paints to treat the blank canvas first. I may go try watercolor with kids, which will be easier.
Supplies you will need:
- pastel colored spray paints
- dimensional paints
- colored buttons
- Slightly apply pastel colored spray paints on your canvas. Make sure don’t put too much of the pastel spray paint. Let the paint dry in about an hour.
- Sketch a tree on the canvas as guide when creating the project.
- Fill in the tree with brown metallic finish paint.
- Add dimension to the tree with dimensional paints.
- When the paints are dry, add buttons (better arrange the buttons before using glue).
