DIY Button Monogram Art

I picked up a few frames from the Dollar Tree to create artwork for a gallery wall in my living room. I have been Pinning ideas and arrangements all week. I am so excited! My desire is to create a gallery wall on a budget. Because you don't need to spend a fortune to have a beautifully decorated home.

 I will be posting my progress and DIY art for you all to be inspired by!

I already have a large collection of vintage buttons that I found at the thrift store. And I thought they would make the perfect monogram.

I traced my letter on some thick card stalk. Then I arranged my buttons till I was happy and carefully hot glued them in place.

Keeping to a similar color scheme is key here. And be sure to fill in the gaps by overlapping buttons otherwise it will look incomplete.

Clean up any glue strings and erase any visible pencil lines.

I created this piece for mere dollars!
You could spend a fortune on buttons at the craft store so keep an eye out for buttons at the thrift store, flea market or even garage sales. 

I hope you liked it!

Blessings, Nicole
