How to Make a Nautical Button Frame *original idea*

Hey Yall

I hope your day went a little better than mine. Today is Father’s Day and that day always feels hard for me. With that being said, I decided to take my sadness out on making a craft. Crafts are great for coping. Whenever I keep my hands busy I experience relief. Below is what I made. I would like to note that in the photo below my grandfather is carrying me on his shoulders. He has carried me through every hardship and life and even in his 80’s continues to help, love, and support me. Today, I celebrate him. :

What you need to make a button frame:

1 Frame (can purchase from thrift store of dollar tree)

hot glue gun with glue sticks


Any other tiny embellishments you would like to glue on (shells, jewels, broken colored pencils, etc)

How to make: 

Using a glue gun, carefully glue the buttons  to the frame. You can do any color and any order you want too. I chose to also glue on some little star fish beads that I had gotten from Michaels a while back. I used blue and white colored buttons on my frame to give it a nautical feel. Please just be careful with the glue gun, as buttons are very small and if you do not pay attention the glue can can easily get on you. I would say this is a teen-adult craft as a child could easily touch the glue gun or get glue from the gun on them. 

You are welcome to share this craft but please link it back to me! I was inspired by a button craft I saw but I came up with the idea to make mine nautical. 🙂 You could also make yours a Fourth of July frame or any other holiday!
