DIY Colorful Buttons Photo Frame.

You may also know or not that I’ve been working on a series of photo frames so my girl doesn’t forget her family while we are away from our home country.

So I put those two fun projects together to make this beautiful and colorful Buttons Photo Frame.

This is another quick and easy fun project. I made it in less than 30 min. Most of the time I spent was choosing the buttons and deciding where and how to put them.

I could have made it more crowded but I preferred taking advantage of the transparency of the glass the frame provided!

How to make this Cute Buttons Photo Frame

Supplies:

  • Mixed buttons
  • Photo frame
  • Ribbon bow or any other embellishment Optional*

Tools

Hot glue gun and glue sticks

The supplies needed to make the DIY Colorful Buttons Photo Frame

Instructions:

Firstly, clean your photo frame well with alcohol so it’s free of dust and grease.

Then plan how you would like the buttons to be placed.

The next step is to start gluing them in place.

Play with the sizes and colors. You can also layer some if you would like to create depth.

Keep glueing them in place until you cover the whole frame.

Tadaaaaaaaa!!!!! That’s it! Isn’t it the easiest craft ever?

That was quick, right????

I think this is my first really short post! LOL.

I used my aunt’s photo for this one. She’s so special to me and my daughter is her first (and so far the only) grandniece.

So I wanted to make sure that whenever they have the chance to meet, at least Emma knows who she is and never forget her.

It’s a way to keep her in Emma’s mind and not forget even though they don’t know each other that well LOL

Crafting Tips

  • Mix and match sizes: Don’t be afraid to use buttons of different sizes. The variety adds depth and visual interest to your frame.
  • Create unique patterns by arranging buttons in different shapes, like hearts, flowers, stripes, or even create a mini button rainbow. Let your imagination run wild!
  • You could also instead of sticking to one color scheme, try using a vibrant mix of buttons in various hues. It will make your frame pop.
  • Embellish with ribbons: For an extra touch of cuteness, tie tiny ribbons around some buttons or create mini bows to attach strategically.
  • If you want a touch of glamour, apply a thin layer of glue and sprinkle glitter on a few buttons.
  • Don’t limit yourself to buttons alone! Incorporate other small decorative items like beads, sequins, or even small fabric flowers. This unexpected mix will make your photo frame truly one-of-a-kind.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use any type of buttons for my decorated photo frame?

Absolutely! You can use any type of buttons you like – big, small, colorful, shiny – it’s all up to your personal style and preference. Let your creativity guide you!

What if I don’t have enough buttons in the colors I want?

No worries! You can always paint plain buttons using acrylic paints. It’s a fun way to customize the colors and make your buttons match your vision perfectly. Get your inner artist ready!

Can I mix different button sizes and shapes together?

Absolutely! Mixing and matching button sizes and shapes adds an extra dose of charm and whimsy to your photo frame. Feel free to experiment and create unique combinations that reflect your personality.

How can I make my button photo frame more unique?

Think outside the frame! Consider adding extra embellishments like ribbons, fabric scraps, or even small trinkets. Get creative and let your imagination run wild. It’s the little details that make your photo frame truly special.

How do I attach the buttons to the frame securely?

Good question! You can use a strong adhesive like craft glue or a hot glue gun. Apply a small dot of glue to the back of each button and press firmly onto the frame. Make sure to let it dry completely before handling.

How do I clean my button-decorated frame?

To clean your frame, gently wipe the surface with a soft, dry cloth. Avoid using water or harsh cleaning solutions, as they may damage the buttons or adhesive.
