This is a great project for old time black and white photos and baby pictures.Â You only need a frame and some buttons.Â I added some ribbon and a ribbon rose to soften it a little but this is one of those projects where you can let your creativity go and really make itÂ your own.Â Â
- glue and/or glue gun
- ribbon or embellishments of your choice
Step 1.Â Apply glue to frame in small areas and then begin to apply buttons, one at a time.Â After surface is covered I start adding more buttons on top of the other buttons in different spots to give it a layered look. Let it dry well before going on to next step.
After you have covered the whole frame with buttons you can start adding embellishments.Â If youÂ want to add a ribbon, tie a small bow and leave extra ribbon at both ends.Â Glue the bow on first and then put dots of glue at different spots on the frame and attach the ribbon leaving slack as shown.Â I like to add little buttons at eachÂ spot where the ribbon is attached.
