As you may or may not know I love a button and have amassed quite a collection, but they're no good sitting in a box in a cupboard where nobody sees their beauty so I decided to get my craft on with some of the nicer ones.
I began by printing out a large letter 'W' as it's the initial of our surname and traced it onto a square canvass
I then laid out my buttons inside the 'W' shape, this was trickier than I had expected and required more small buttons than I had initially anticipated but after a bit of trial and error I eventually came up with a pattern that pleased me.
Once laid out I transposed the buttons onto the canvass one by one, sticking them down with a hot glue gun,
a couple of hours and some third degree burns later, here's the end result
Interesting close up but to get the overall effect viewing from a distance is recommended
Not bad for a couple of quid considering I've seen similar with asking prices upwards of £200!!!!
