Most of have a stockpile of buttons from other projects, so gather them up for this fabulous DIY project! I just love the bright colored buttons they’ve used in this great piece of art, and it’s so darned simple to make! I might also mention that I saw one of these on Etsy for $68! Hmmm…another avenue for income?
I’m especially fond of butterflies and they way they transform from ugly caterpillars into something so spectacular! There are so many quotes regarding this process and many of them represent the transformation of human beings into a joyful life…perhaps that is also part of my fascination with these beautiful creatures. They represent freedom for to me.
If you don’t have a stockpile of buttons, you can buy bags of these really cheap at the craft stores. You can also make this same thing with vintage buttons to give them a totally different look. Vintage buttons look especially good if you have Shabby Chic decor.
When browsing Pinterest I saw many ideas for doing this same project. I saw a really cute rooster that would look darling in a kitchen! Another cute project made out of buttons was a ladybug…and the list goes on and on.
My daughter bought the most beautiful large pastel button picture of a dancing girl, for my granddaughter’s room, and it has a sweet saying embroidered around it in pastel embroidering floss. It’s my very favorite of all her great artwork in her home!
