You know that saying, you are the company which you keep?
When it comes to my friends this is sooooo true.
All my friends are gorgeous, smart, and kind, so, therefore, I must be, too. Natch.
Not only are all my friends lovely, but they are also talented in so many ways. The best part is it is not at all competitive (and if you know me, I know this is hard to believe). Instead, I enjoy and celebrate the talents my friends possess because remember I am the company I keep, and you best believe I’m gonna try to emulate their crafts. Yesterday, my sister-in-law Courtney (gorg, smart, and sweet, obvi) sent me a text of her latest craft. I absolutely adore it. I gushed over it, and decided to share it with you all.
Best of all, it is a quick craft, it uses BURLAP (holler!), and it’s perfect for the holiday season.
Isn’t it darling?
While a tutorial probably isn’t necessary for this cute button tree on burlap, I’ll give you a quick run down of materials and directions.
Here’s what you’ll need for the button tree on burlap:
- burlap (burlapfabric.com is my choice supplier of burlap because, yes, one has to have a choice supplier of burlap)
- a glue gun with glue sticks
- a frame— without the glass
Here’s what you’ll do:
- Cut the appropriate size of burlap for your frame.
- Adhere/secure the burlap onto the mdf backing of the frame
- Arrange and then glue the buttons.
So quick, so easy, yet, so cute. You could adapt this craft for other winter shapes, such as a snowflake or even a wreath. Better yet, you may be able to think of additional designs for other seasons.
Thanks for sharing this one, Courtney. Now, excuse me while I whip up one of these button trees on burlap!
