I fell in love with this beautiful DIY project and I made one right away! I had lots of old buttons and picked up a cheap wood cross and canvas at Michaels.
I already had plenty of different colored paints and spray paints and used pages from an old book and cheesecloth the way she does in her tutorial.
This is such an easy project and you’ll enjoy doing it. Basically all you’re doing is gluing and painting. This is called Finnibair and another term that you have probably heard of is mixed media.
I have had more fun doing mixed media art. It involves all types of different papers, textures and paint. The end result is something incredibly interesting to look at.
It’s a great way to use up your various craft supplies that you have left over, and, all those buttons you have been hanging onto!
I’d also like to remind you that these make fabulous gifts! Can you imagine receiving something so cool from a friend or family member? I would flip out if someone gave this to me!
Watch how Angela Holt makes this great piece of art in her step by step tutorial so you can get busy making these!
