Creating Button Art

DIY Button Artwork

There are so many ideas around when art can be constructed from buttons. Our craft today is no exception! Creating button art is a challenge in some respects because the type of button art you can create is only limited by the imagination. I have seen lambs, hearts, sunflowers, jellyfish, and mosaics that will bring a gasp because they are so intricate and beautiful.

Great Button Art Projects

You needn’t look any further than doing a Google search or looking on Pinterest for some great ideas. Search for “button art” just to see what you get! On my Pinterest DIY Craft Tutorials board, I have re-pinned some really interesting designs – go take a look. Is there anything there you want to make? I know I want to make more than just today’s project.

Today’s Project – The Button Art Tree on a Canvas

I decided to make a tree for our project today. Before I got started, I realized that I needed to have a tree silhouette for my canvas.

Instead of copying someone else, I created a whole new tree silhouette and placed it in my resource library for you to download. This is a free file for you.

I have it in 2 versions: SVG (for those with a Cricut) and PDF (for those who prefer to hand cut).


  • Buttons in multiple sizes.
  • A canvas or cardstock for the artwork.
  • Patterned paper or acrylic paints. For this project, I used a patterned cardstock for the background just to save time.
  • Glue – a glue that will hold the weight of the buttons when the project is framed. I love E6000 and tend to use it a great deal. You may have another type of glue you prefer to use.
  • Tree template – download the template as either an SVG or PDF file from the resource library.

If you are going to use paint on a canvas, you will need to prep the canvas with the colors you will be using for the background.

If you are using heavy card stock, as I did for the project, then you can cut the paper to approximately 12″ x 12″ for a larger tree or 8.5″ x 11″ if you want to make a smaller one. I used 12″ x 12″.

Make sure you have downloaded the tree silhouette from the resource library before starting this part of the project (it is sized for an 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper so you will not have to make any adjustments when you upload it to design space).

Note that I used 12″ x 12″ paper. All I needed to do was upload the file, insert it into my project, then save it and make it.

The silhouette came out perfectly although the weeding (taking the tree off the cutting mat) was touchy as some of the branches are thin and I had no problem.

If you are hand cutting, you can print the tree on any color (except black – it will not show) and cut the outline. Remember the cuts do not need to be perfect, you are after a barren tree look.

In the image below you can see the tree silhouette I cut with my Cricut Maker. You can achieve the same look with scissors except your branches may be a bit thicker. It does not really matter which way you do your cut, it will work.

Adding the Buttons

This is absolutely the most fun part of the project. You will want to layout your buttons before gluing them down to make sure you have the arrangement you . I tried several layouts before I decided on my final one. See the image below on how I made my arrangement.

The finished project will look so amazing!

Finishing up your Button Art Project

Now is the time to glue your buttons to the art. Make sure you have a glue that will dry clear and not show on your finished canvas. As an option you could sew on your buttons – this will take a lot more work but you will be assured that your buttons will not fall off your project.

More Reading on Button Art

As research shows, there are many books on button art, some are very simple, but wow the ideas they can give you! Here are my book recommendations you should buy.

This project took several hours just because I needed my canvas to dry in stages. The creative part was exciting and I was able to use many different colored buttons in the project. I had a box full of old buttons (never throw out old clothing without taking off the buttons and saving them for projects such as this one).

I am so pleased with my results!

Don’t forget to read our other articles from this week: Paper Plate Weaving – lots of fun and Ideas for Creating Art with Toilet Paper Rolls. These are just a sample of what we produce each week. During the 100 day challenge, you will find great paper craft ideas and more.

26 Innovative and Beautiful Button Crafts and Projects

DIY Button Artwork

Whether you’re a sewing master or an all-round crafter, you may be one of the many who have a big collection of buttons stashed away.

There’s no way that you’ll be able to use them all up on fixing buttonless shirts, so perhaps it’s time to think outside the box a little.

These cute and clever button projects will give you some fantastic inspiration with regards to putting your collection to good use in non-traditional ways.

Button Bowl

This cute and whimsical button bowl is the perfect way to store your little bits and bobs jewelry or keys. It uses the same method as the cotton thread balls where you use a balloon to create the shape you want, much a mold, which is then popped and discarded once everything is set and dried.

Quick Bookmarks

Everything you make doesn’t always have to be grand or complicated; you can make something as simple as a button bookmark with a paperclip that you know will be put to good use. It’s a quick and easy craft that can really help your school-going kids.

Simple Wall Art

I just love this fleur-de-lis symbol, although, of course you can go with practically any image or monogram as long as it’s not too detailed or finicky. The best part about this project is that you don’t have to sew the buttons – you can cheat and just glue them on!

Oh Christmas Tree

If you have a good range of sizes among all your forgotten buttons, then you may be able to make yourself a few of these charming Christmas tree ornaments. If you don’t have enough greens, though, you can either spray paint them or simply embrace the non-traditional colors.

Beautified Button Shoes

Whether you want to vamp up an old pair of shoes, or you found a plain pair on sale for next to nothing, a really cute way to do so is to add buttons. You’ll have to take the longer sewing route with these; when considering all the movement of your feet in your shoes, the buttons may just pop off if you use hot glue to attach them.

Fridge Magnets

Ok, so here’s a really nice and easy craft that is so simple, yet people don’t seem to think about it – button fridge magnets! It really is as easy as it sounds: glue magnets onto the buttons and you’re good to go! It adds a fun and playful element of whimsy to your kitchen.

Leather Cuff

I love all things bohemian, so this leather button cuff is right up my alley. If you can get the blank leather cuff with all the hardware on it then you’re already halfway there, otherwise you’ll just have to attach those yourself. This could make a really interesting belt idea, too!

Cupcake Art

Flower Bouquet

These felt and button flowers are just adorable, and they’re so much fun to make, too! You could get your little ones involved in the project so that they can proudly display them in their rooms, or even give them to their teachers as gifts.

This Christmassy garland is a real cinch to make if you can do a simple chain stitch. I love the holiday themed colors that can turn your home into a real festive place, but of course, you can just pick any colors for absolutely any time of the year.

Fun Frames

Any simple frame can be transformed into something noticeable and pretty with the addition of some buttons. You can keep it simple, or arrange the buttons according to color for a rainbow or ombre theme.

Buttoned-Up Handbag

If you have the patience and the sanity to cover an entire handbag with buttons, then you truly deserve to have something this gorgeous! Sure, this is a big job, but if you don’t think you’ll see it through, then perhaps you could use the same technique on a smaller clutch.

Pretty Gift Bags

Give a plain gift bag a personalized touch by adding some buttons and yarn as embellishments; it’s a great way to use some of your plainer buttons. You can even do this to blank cards as well!

Resin Paperweight/Coaster

Resin is freaking fantastic because you can cast pretty much anything in there – buttons included! These make really cute paperweights or coasters, and finding the right mold can be as easy as using a cup or even a jar lid.

Woven Coaster

If you’re not a big fan of the bulky resin coasters then you can try this woven technique instead. And this isn’t just limited to coasters, you could make some gorgeous placemats for your dining table – it’s not too difficult, but it will take some time if you want a set.

Bobby Pins

A couple of bobby pins, a touch of glue, and some  interesting or vintage buttons are all you need to make some very simple yet striking hair clips. I just love simple projects these!

Embroidery Button Clock

If the hours seem to fly by when you find yourself heading into your craft room, then perhaps it’s time you make yourself a clock to go in there, and what could be more fitting than an embroidery hoop and button clock? If this isn’t quite to your taste, though, have a look at our other DIY clocks.

When it comes to my really close friends and family, I prefer implementing some interesting and unique gift wrapping techniques as opposed to just using regular wrapping paper. This simple little button detail is so cute and it just gives it that little special touch.

Button Tree Art

This is such a cute idea – instead of painting leaves on a tree, you can just glue on some buttons! This is also fun to do with the kids, since you can paint the trunk and branches, and then let the little ones choose where they want to place their buttons.

This site doesn’t contain a step-by-step tutorial, but I think it’s quite easy to figure out. You can either buy a lampshade frame or just remove the fabric from an existing one, and then thread your buttons through some thin wire. I wonder how it would look with the light on!

DIY Button Artwork

Last week I stumbled upon a cool Reindeer Button Art photo that I shared with our followers. And that sort of set the ball rolling. If you recall my not so legendary fashion college education from the previous posts, you would know any person who passes out from a design course ends up with about two tonnes of raw material accumulated from various projects.

So here I am, drowning in my drawers of Buttons and I decide to give them a new purpose in life – BUTTON ART ! What I love most about Button Artworks is their absolute lack of any discrimination against any kind of buttons. They don’t need to match in color, in size, in shape, in detailing or in any way. And somehow it will always end up looking good.

Online has two kinds of button art. One’s the intensive exhibition kind – massive installations done by professional artists. And the second are the DIY projects (which normal souls us can execute). Here’s the best examples of Button Art (the do-able ones) I could find online.


Starting of with the one that got this post going. The image on the right is what I had posted on our page. I initially found it on a DIY page and loved the shape and color mix.

When I got this blog idea, I revisited the photo and discovered the origins at which also had many more tutorials on Button Art. You can read all about these two and others here.

 When I saw the reindeer, my first thought was – how cute would a wall full of assorted animals be !


Coming to the intense ones, Lil Blue Boo has created some of the popular characters through Buttons.

I can already imagine the effort that has gone into making this one, but I guess the number of hours you put into this will directly reflect on the end result. So if you do have some time, then portraits would be pretty cool.

the trick is to find many tones of the color to show proper shading. They have uploaded a video tutorial showing how they went about it, which you can access here.


This one’s for the romantics (or for that matter, anyone you love). Create a heart-shape through assorted Red buttons give it an added edge with some nice background or pattern.

You can grab a printed fabric or wrapping paper for the background. The image on the left was done by Mama’s Crafty Place on a square tile.

The right image is by Southern Lovely Stripes done on striped burlap cloth which was framed. 


Taking the love theme forward, you can try doing the word instead of the basic heart if you want.

Infact if you check out the basics of this DIY tutorial by Jen Goode,you can pretty much use that info and come up with any word on a plaque – either some word thats important to you, or a personalised one a name or family name.

If you would notice, this particular image above has a Pink Ribbon, which is in support of the Breast cancer campaign – such a subtle but important message. When you try button art, you can also think of what causes are important to you personally.


Stemming off from the previous idea, I found lots of Button Art ideas for Alphabets.

I think this would make for a very cool birthday gift for your friends and family – you can make it in assorted colors or maybe their favorite colors and get it framed for their wall or desks.

If you’re into bigger-DIY mode, then you can also consider making a wall collage of the first alphabets of your family’s names. Living Pretty Blog has a pretty great Tutorial explaining the nuances of decorating alphabets.


For your living rooms and more neutral themes, you can always take inspiration from Mother Nature. Starting with flowers to scenery to foliage, you can end up with a landscape masterpiece.

The images above are from East HomeStead’s blog where they have assembled lots of tree projects for 2D and 3D looks.

You can either go traditional mixing up green and brown shades, or create a completely psychedelic tree using multiple colors.


A unique take on Button Art, Iris Fuller  paints her subject on a smaller canvas before copying her design onto wood and covering it with buttons.

If you’re looking at a detailed project, then this might be the best advice on offer for you. Ofcourse if painting is not your forte, you can consider using an existing photo/painting as your reference point.

You can check out more about Iris & her amazing work here.


This one was honestly jaw-dropping for me – I’m probably never going to gather my guts to go so intense DIY, but if you’re up for the challenge, then lots of luck to you.

This particular artwork is titled “Girl with a Pearl Earring” and was created by Jane Perkins, over at

uk Using assorted buttons has been the key in developing such an effect here, if you’ll notice – you would find everything from pearl tops to flat square buttons here.


One of the most appropriate recycling projects for anyone who’s from a design school – taking the raw material back to the fashion theme ! These artworks are the creation of artist, Lauren Levy, who created it as a part of her Exhibit in Texas,USA in 2009.

You can find more images of her Exhibit and products here. I think designers with their own studio’s and shops can work this one so well – recreating design stationary scissors, bobbin and thread, dress forms etc. and hang them on their walls or entrance.


Here’s an idea for a personalised touch. Using Button Art to create a cute little parachute, they have hung a photo from the base using strings. I personally thought this was adorable because of the colors and graphics. It has a real charm to it. I couldn’t find any specific tutorial for this one, but you can go snooping around at Collage Scraps where I found this image.


I found many good examples of Button Art on Tumblr that I think can easily be converted into DIY projects. Two of my favorites from there are the Button Embroidery Circles (imagine them on a design studio wall) and the Lady (i’m not 100% sure if it was supposed to be Marilyn). You can check out all the Tumblr ideas here.


I also found lots of artists who had uploaded their Button Artworks on Flickr. The first image that caught my eye is titled Curacao Button Art, its by Chrissy Olson.This particular one is crazy with the detailing and you can also note how she has created multiple layers to give the peacock more dimension. You can find the detailed photo and more about the artist through her Flickr account.


Also on Flickr was this adorable little owl, made in 3D and uploaded by Melmashman. It would be harder to create a button sculpture and would definitely involve stitching, so keep that in mind while going for this project. If you are bored of flat button art, then this one is definitely for you. You can find the Owl image here.


Etsy is a popular website in US that acts as a platform for independent artists to sell their handcrafted wares. So I was bound to find some Button artworks there.

But I had no idea they would be this awesome ! My first and immediate favorite was a Bird artwork by BellePapiers  who mixed up playful button shapes to create a delicate flying bird. The use of shaped buttons flowers has added a new dimension to the design.

It even got me thinking – how about a tree full of colored birds. The image on the right is a wallpaper, but I think it could work very well as a DIY inspiration for buttons.


Since Britain and the royal baby is on everyone’s mind, this one is quite apt ! The Union Jack artwork by CardsByJane is available on Etsy for $48. Consider creating your special flag using the flag color buttons for a patriotic DIY project.


Remember how I started the post segregating Button Art into two categories. In case you were feeling deprived of knowing about the first Exhibit kind, here’s a sample. Artist Ran Hwang creates this large wall installation from buttons inspired by the flock of birds. You can view more of his Installation art here.

Here’s hoping you would have found something to inspire you to upcycle buttons for your homes !
