Shamrock Button Art

By Kid’s Crafts Contributor Tracey, from the blog We Made That.

St. Patrick's Day Shamrock Button Art

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to have my daughter make this Shamrock Button Art project to put on the mantel.  She has really been in to crafting with buttons lately and was really excited when I brought out a bunch of green buttons for a project.

I traced the shamrock pattern onto the burlap frame and then she used the glue gun to glue all the buttons on.  The easiest way to do this is to start by gluing the buttons around the outline first, then move into the middle.  It is okay to glue buttons on top of one another to cover up all the burlap in your shamrock.

Button Love

A few months ago my aunt gifted me with a couple of zip lock gallon baggies full of buttons. Teeny white ones, big fat vintage leather ones, colors and sizes galore. I love them and must admit that I’ve got them in pretty jars on my shelf so I can just stare at their gorgeousness. But I also love using buttons in usual ways in my crafting and decorating projects. I’ve been digging deep into pinterest for some ideas for all those buttons, here are a few of my favorites.

I can’t decide if I should make these for my daughter, or myself! So fun and funky! I love them! While they would definitely be a labor of love, they would also be a fantastic way to show off a special button collection. Cant wait to get started! How about you?

Buttons - Dream Patch

Buttons – Dream Patch

My little girl is currently growing her hair out and so we’re on the hunt for cute hair bobbles for those future pony tails and these are so fun! I love the idea of customizing them for different favorite outfits or just having a whole rainbow of button bands available for our morning hair sessions, but these would be super cute with vintage or sparkly shank buttons for special occasions. And best of all they are so fast! Who knew? Easy peasy even on a busy morning!

Button Wreath

The Button Wreath: An Easy Kids Christmas Craft

This is just a quick project to keep the idle hands busy once school lets out for the Holidays. The little ones can practice motor skills as they place the buttons on a sparkly pipe cleaner. Once they are done simply twist the wire into a circle. A quick gift for everyone on your list.




Simply place the buttons on the pipe cleaner by inserting it through any hole on the button.  Continue to add buttons until you can make a circle with the buttons. Once all the buttons have been added, use one end of the pipe cleaner to twist around the other end to close the circle. Take the other end of the pipe cleaner and make a loop to use as a hanger. Tie a bow around the cleaner with ribbon to make it pretty.

This is a simple kid friendly, no glue craft!!
