I’ve been seeing a lot of rainbow-inspired button art kicking around on Pinterest lately, and I thought I’d make my own.
I included my fave crafty sidekick a.k.a. Kid #1. She is the best.
Step 1: Put on your Christmas PJ’s and draw the outline of a rainbow. I traced a bunch of different sized lids to make it perfect. Kid #1 just wung it. (Or would that be “winged it” or “wang it”?)
Step 2: Color in the rainbow:
OMG. Mine is SO much better…
Step 3: Buttons+glue=me+you= Love, do you hear me? See, I do remember Math 10.
Step 4: You can add clouds, or you can write “Mercie” in swirly, pink letters. Either-or, really 😉
Step 5: Frame without the glass- ISN’T THAT CUTE???
This piece of artwork would be perfect to brighten up that little spot in your hallway that needs a ray of sunshine. Or you could give it
to a gay baby as a baby shower gift… wouldn’t it look cute on a nursery wall?
Now, while I’m here, I’ll share a little turquoise button tree I made for a sweet gal named Flora:
‘Flora’ is my fave girl name right now. It is so pretty and classic, unique but not crazy. (Not that I’m opposed to crazy.) And on that note, I gotta get knocked up again. 😉 Happy Button gluing!
