Spring Canvas Art with Buttons

Hello, friends!  I’m Amy, aka One Artsy Mama, and I am so excited to be teaming up with Lots of Buttons to write weekly blog posts about the projects I {and occasionally my “Little Crafter”} create using a variety of the fabulous buttons they have to offer!  You can find me here each Monday sharing something new; I hope you’ll stop by to say hello and see what I’ve been up to with my button stash.


For my first project, I wanted to make something bright and full of springtime cheer. I seasonally rotate the artwork in the entryway of our home, so I decided to make a canvas for this Spring using buttons as the blossoms on a tree. Here’s how I did it:


  •  assorted buttons
  •  11×14″ Canvas
  •  adhesive vinyl
  •  vinyl cutting machine and software {or scissors and a lot of patience!}

The specific buttons I used for this project are:

  •  “Karen” {6, 14 mm}
  • “Josie” {12, 14 mm}
  • “Abe” {6, 14 mm}
  • “Marisol” {12, 10 mm}
  • “Naomi” {6, 11 mm}

I loved that they came sorted by type and sealed in individual rows!


Step 1: Cut tree shape from brown adhesive vinyl and adhere it in the center of your canvas.

If you don’t have vinyl or a cutting machine, another option is to sketch or trace a tree shape onto your canvas and fill it in with brown paint.


Step 2: Cut words from adhesive vinyl and adhere to your canvas.  I chose “faith, hope,” and “Love.”

Once again, you can opt to paint the words instead, if you prefer.



Step 3: Add your buttons to the tree branches, attaching them with craft glue.


My “Little Crafter” really enjoyed helping with this part.  He liked deciding where the “flowers” would go and  placing them down on the glue.


Once the glue has dried completely, you’re ready to hang your art and enjoy it all season long!


I think it would be beautiful to make one of these in fall colors too!  I just may have to put that on my to-do list…


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed this week’s project…see you next Monday!

 Hugs & Glitter,
