Heart Button Art DIY Tutorial

Have you seen all the cute crafts you can make with buttons? Buttons have now become a staple in my craft kit. They are perfect for kids to do crafts with and usually if you’re just doing some fun and simple crafting a glue stick will be fine to stick on the button to your craft. We recently made paper plate snowman and used buttons for the snowman’s eyes and buttons. Now today though, I’m sharing how you can use buttons to make this beautiful and simple heart button art!

3. Next, start filling in your empty spaces using your smaller buttons. Use the smaller buttons to layer on top and ensure all empty spaces are covered. You should have some really small spaces still showing at this point.
