Name Button Art



I’ve seen loads of these button art things on Pinterest. I think they are so cute so, I thought I’d have a go myself.

I had a box frame from IKEA so I thought I would use that. I had bought it to frame Boo’s first pair of shoes but, being a late walker, they didn’t fit and the frame was just in my wardrobe.

I took out the paper insert and measured it. Then printed off Boo’s initial and the words and got my creative hat on.


I had loads of buttons lying around but I did visit my local haberdashers to get a few more pink ones and a bow.

I cut out the letter, painted glue onto it and began putting buttons on it.


I was genuinely pleased with the result but then disaster happened. The frame fell apart. It must have been all the squashing I did, trying to get the shoes in.

Unfortunately it was beyond repair and IKEA had stopped selling that shape. The alternative was slightly smaller than the original so I had to do a bit more cutting and sticking.


It’s not perfect but I am pleased with it and it just goes to show you, Pinterest isn’t always crafts you drool at. You can have a go yourself too.
