Framed button art! I know, I know. I haven't even put away *any* Christmas decorations, and I'm already making Valentine's Day things. I just need a reason to craft! This seemed perfect. It's not like I'll actually put them out yet, just... have them ready.

You're going to need buttons. Either break out that button jar of buttons you've been collecting, or go to Hobby Lobby and get some. I wanted to use red buttons with a white background, but all they had was white and beige (in bulk).

Next, figure out how you want your design. It took me a few tries to finally get a nice looking heart.

Cut out the necessary felt needed that fits the frame. Mine was 4"X6".

Sew 'em all on.

I added a slightly larger white square of felt, and then another pink rectangle that is 4X6.

I secured the other pieces of felt by going back and adding a couple stitches to the buttons. I was lazy and didn't feel like sewing on the other pieces of felt. But it worked just fine and dandy!

Ta-daaaa! I may make another and actually center it next time! Smiley Cute, huh? You could create various shapes depending on the holiday. Easter eggs for Easter, shamrocks for St. Patty's day, or a flag for 4th of July.

I love this! I've been looking for a new project after finally finishing with my Christmas crochet gifts. Totally doing this.

What a clever idea! And it's something you can do with craft supplies you already have; and even if you don't have them, it won't cost much!

Oh my gosh, it took me like... 20 seconds to finally realize who you were. I was SO confused. Bahahaha!

Thank you ladies for all the compliments. Let me know if y'all create your own, and I love pictures! *wink wink*

Love this! It's such a simple thing but it really looks great! I'll have to try this!

I want so badly to believe that there is truth and love is real.
