Little Girl Wall Art

A few years back, I stumbled upon these beauts. I was so drawn to their unique colors and shapes and I especially fell for the rows of buttons still lined up straight on their original button cards. Their painted finish had flaked a little over time, which made them even more imperfectly perfect.

I had no idea what I would do with them, but that is nothing new. I'm of the belief that if you really love something (and have the cash to pay for it) you should grab it up! Then, stash it away until you have that Aha! moment.

Don't worry, it will come.

Here's my Aha! solution.

All it required was a hot glue gun and a chipped up frame. I used a brown paper sack for the backing. Forgotten and found buttons as little girl wall art.

And best of all, I didn't have to break up their happy little families.
