I’ve seen a lot of button art floating around Pinterest. That is what inspired me to do this Pumpkin Button Art. I’m so happy I did!
It is one of my favorite DIY projects I’ve ever done. It was also pretty easy.

Some of the tutorials on button art said to sew the buttons onto the fabric. Call me lazy if you want but I didn’t want to do that. 🙂
Instead I used this glue. It worked perfect for gluing the buttons onto the fabric. No need to sew!
Speaking of fabric, I picked up a black and white chevron fabric from Joann’s. I bought a 1/2 yard for less than $6.
Once I had all of my supplies it was time to start crafting. The first thing I did was printed off a pumpkin to use as my template.
Once I had my pumpkin printed off I arranged the buttons on it and took a picture.
Then I started gluing the buttons onto the fabric. I took them off of the paper pumpkin one at a time and glued them onto the fabric, keeping them in the same pattern. I also used the picture I took as a reference.
Once I had all of the buttons on I realized it needed more.So I started layering the buttons, still using the glue.
I think it looked much better after I added more buttons.
After that I cut the fabric to fit in the frame and added it to the shadow box. That’s it! I think my first attempt at button art was a success.
This is everything I ordered for this project (besides the fabric):
