Button burlap {heart}


I think I must really be into canvases lately, because here is yet another craft involving them. :)

I LOVE Valentine decor. I love the bold red, the candy hearts, it's the month of love, how can you go wrong?! :)

Today I am sharing how to make a fun little piece of art for the month.

Meet my button burlap heart. :)

Supplies needed:
Canvas
Paint
Tape
Burlap
Buttons
Hot glue
Vinyl (optional)


Start with a blank canvas. Using painters tape, I measured, then marked where I wanted my stripes to be. Then place your tape down, & paint in every other line. You will want to get the sides of the canvas as well, I had to go back & re-tape & paint them, since it looks a lot better that way.


On the burlap, I traced a heart & cut. Now it's time to glue on the buttons. My suggestion is apply a line of glue on your burlap, and add a bunch of buttons at once. It goes much more quickly that way. I would also suggest going around the heart with the buttons, then working your way in.

Once that is finished, hot glue your button burlap heart to your canvas.

Add the final touch with your vinyl letters & your artwork is complete!

Pretty simple, right?! My favorite kind. :)

So pretty! I'm such a fan of Valentine's now that I have kids (it was too much pressure when dating!). Love the stripes too (of course!).

Becca said...

This is totally darling! I love, love, love it! I totally thought it was striped fabric until you said it was paint. Very cute Lindsay!

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said...

I ADORE this! The stripes added the perfect touch, makes it more chic versus cutesy (which is my kind of style!). Not sure why I don't work with canvas more often.

Kara @ Mine for the Making said...
