Today we are joined by blogger/designer/instructor/author May Flaum, from www.craftwithmay.com, who is sharing a back to school project with us. – editor
When I have supplies not being used, I try to envision a purpose and make it useful. In this case I had a small 5×7 chalkboard that has been sitting around way too long. Since I don’t see myself using it as intended, I decided to convert it into a photo frame for this school picture.
This is one of my favorite ways to use buttons, and it’s a super quick and easy project too! It will work on any flat wood frame, and I love how it turned out. The less you think about perfect button placement, and the more you just fill the space and enjoy – the better it will turn out!
I worked with the beautiful Vintage Vogue buttons and I really liked how quick and easy they made this project.
- Haberdashery Vintage Vogue HAB117 buttons,
- Wood photo frame
- white paint
- liquid adhesive
1. Paint frame with white paint if desired
2. Apply a liberal amount of liquid adhesive around the wood frame.
