I have been wanting to make a cute art project with buttons for the past few months. I finally created a Tree Button Art for my fall décor. I originally planned to do a pumpkin shape with fall colored buttons but then I got inspired by something unexpected.
I recently was sorting through some papers and found this sweet card a friend sent me (see picture above). I was admiring the picture of the tree on the front of this card. It then came to me to make an art project based on this design but with a fall theme.
(Side Note: I love the thoughtfulness of a card sent the old fashioned way. In case you are reading this friend…THANK YOU so much for the card and for being such a great friend!)
The card has the word “Friend” but I used the word “FALL” instead. I used Scrabble tiles for the words to add another dimension. I happen to have an old Scrabble game from when I was a kid. I saved all the letter tiles thinking someday I may use it in a craft project. Someday has arrived. I love that my Tree Art has both buttons and Scrabble Tiles.
Along with the buttons and Scrabble letter tiles, the other materials I used for this project were a square frame, dark brown cardstock paper, kraft paper, pencil, scissors and glue.
