Okay, here’s a challenge for you on this fine Tuesday morning: come up with a creative, never-before-seen use for buttons! I’m curious to know…how can I show off these cute little colorful embellishments in a way that you don’t see everyday? Well, that’s exactly what my editor at Oriental Trading Company tasked me with last month, and today, I’m showing off the finished craft: DIY Buttoned Canvas Photo Displays.
Although my final project tells you to attach the buttons in the traditional way (i.e. sewn onto fabric to be looped over later on), I decided to mix things up a bit by turning the buttons into DIY hooks, if you will, for photos and notecards. I chose to show off a few beachy photos from my trip to LA back in 2014, as well as a cute notecard (that I clearly can’t get enough of, as evidenced here, here, and here) from ban.do.
