Now that the CHA Mega Show is over, we can start sharing with you a closer look at the projects that were designed for our booth, like this ombre heart!
I designed this ombre heart wall art by combining several of our button assortments that contain great shades of pink that work together to make the ombre shift.
This project is surprisingly easy. The biggest challenge is the first step working with the buttons, which is simple but can be tedious. This is a great project to do with kids, to help teach color distinction!
Step 1: Paint the wood heart base with chalk or acrylic paint.
Step 2: Sort the pink buttons into five gradual color shades.
Step 3: Measure the heart from top to bottom. Divide that amount by six to get the width of each color band in the ombre heart. Mark off the divide between each color.
Step 4: Begin to apply the buttons. Apply a thick coat of glue in the first color band, and begin filling with the color for that band.
Step 5: While the first color dries, turn the heart around and work from the other end. Repeat until you meet in the middle and finish the final color.
Step 6: Allow the glue to dry.
Step 7: Use hot glue to attach a loop of ribbon to the rear side on the top of the ombre heart to allow for hanging.
