Craft of the Month: February Love

Button Heart Canvas


Hooters, I bring you the first crafting project of the year! These beautiful hearts were easy to make and took less than an hour to complete. However, time may vary depending on the desired canvas size and placement of buttons. If you would like to accomplish this project, I have listed the supplies and steps below:

Supplies Needed:

  • Canvas Board (Desired size)
  • Fabric or Burlap of Choice (Decorated cardstock paper also works)
  • A Jar of Assorted Buttons
  • Scissors
  • ModPodge (I used the Gloss finish)
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Ribbon
  • Twine (Optional if hanging)

Steps:

  1. Measure and cut choice of fabric to canvas size
  2. Apply ModPodge thoroughly over canvas
  3. Apply measured piece of fabric (be sure to carefully smooth fabric for a clean finished look)
  4. Reapply a thin layer of ModPodge completely over canvas (I did not apply over the burlap)
  5. Allow the canvas to dry for about 10 minutes
  6. Use buttons to create the outside of heart before gluing as guidance for a symmetrical heart
  7. Hot glue buttons in desired areas (Until spaces are covered or until you’re satisfied)
  8. Use ribbon to tie a bow and apply using the hot glue gun
  9. Apply twine to backing if you wish to hang
  10. Gift to someone you love
