I’ve seen this craft in various incarnations on the blogosphere and Pinterest, and given that I had a plain canvas and a ton of white buttons, I thought I’d give it a try.
However, I first painted the canvas because I didn’t want it to be off white, I wanted some contrast with the buttons. I chose a cheery yellow for my project, then used Gorilla Glue to add the buttons after tracing them from a fancy “B” I printed.
For now it’s on my office shelf but I have not yet decided where its new home will be. It’s the perfect shade for the upcoming spring and summer seasons so I think it might earn a place of honor on our mantel.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Very bright and cheery!! Love it.
thanks chicka, I love it too!!!
Love the style of the “B”! It looks just lovely:)
thank you! It’s a font called Easy Street, it had some extra swirls but I deleted them so the letter would be a bit clearer — then my husband saw it upside down and asked if it was a duck. Ahem.
I love this version! What a great font and how cute that it matches your blog background! I also totally turned my iPad upside down to see if it looked like a duck, ha! 🙂
What a sweet project! So whimsical and fun!
Thanks Michaela, you’re so kind!
Thank you, Claire!
