Hi everyone. I'm fascinated at the moment with Button Art. Never done it but am wanting to.
Anyone else interested? Here is a link to my Pinterest board to see what I'm talking about.
I would have to go buy a whole heap of buttons but they are pretty cheap.

I thought we could even put them in a frame or I love the hoopla ones.

I have been pinning several button hoop projects lately, as ideas for a gift for a friend.  I've haven't tried making one yet either.  Some of those pins on your board are very detailed!

    Lol yes some are very detailed but also some are pretty simple and yet stunning like this lilac flower for example: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/168251736053964791/

    This is so neat! I've never done this either, but I want to give it a try. My hoopla wall is also rather lacking

    This sounds like it would be fun. I collect buttons so I surely have some that I could use to make something neato  Smiley
    Thanks for sharing the pinterest link. I got tickled at the button clad dog figure. Made me want one in my craft room as a mascot! Grin

    I made a pillow with a button owl on it for a swap a few years ago:
