Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

Buttons aren’t just for seamstresses you know. I always have a stash of buttons on hand for a variety of projects. I love using them with kid’s crafts, they are great for dressing up little projects, and perfect for a quick embellishment. Buttons definitely have more uses than just fastening a blouse closed. This button tree I finished today is a perfect example.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

I was presented with a challenge by the fine folks at Buttons Galore and More and Jacquard Products to come up with a project using these gorgeous three dimensional paints and a variety of stunning buttons. I am always up for a good craft challenge, so of course I said yes!

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

There’s a bonus too. Jacquard and Buttons Galore have offered to provide a prize package to one lucky reader. You’ll receive the same beautiful paints that I did and will be able to choose some fabulous buttons as well! I’ll tell you more about the giveaway at the end of this post, so stick around.

I’ve had a brand new, still in the shrink wrap, 20″x24″ wrapped canvas sitting in my craft room for months. I bought it because it was on sale and I knew I wanted to make something like this tree, though I assumed I would be painting the whole thing. As I started brainstorming for the challenge, that’s when it hit me to make a button tree. I’ve seen several different kinds around the web, but I hadn’t seen any using dimensional paint.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

So I pulled out the canvas and some pastel colored spray paints I had in the craft room. I started with light blue, spraying one end of the canvas. Then I overlapped a bit with Robin’s Egg Blue, then some purple. I sprayed the other end with pink, then over-sprayed with yellow. Then I just willy nilly sprayed some blue here, yellow there, purple here, until I liked the way it looked. I allowed the canvas to dry for about an hour.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

I drew a simple tree trunk onto the canvas, sketching lightly with a pencil. I drew 5 main branches, then added smaller branches off of those. When I was happy with it I used a brown metallic finish paint to fill in the tree. I used a liner brush on the smaller branches.

This is where I had a little fun with the dimensional paints! I chose the colors Black, Brass, Bright Copper and Gold Pearl. These paints come out in a nice steady stream and looked beautiful, adding a really nice dimension to the canvas.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

Next I chose some of the largest buttons in each of the button collections. I was using Rustic Coconut Shell (my favorites!), Sea Glass, Earthly, Vacation and Rose Garden. I placed them in various places on the canvas. Once I was happy with their placement, I attached them with E6000 adhesive. It took a little while, but I just kept adding different sized and colored buttons everywhere, saving the tiniest buttons for the outer edges.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

That’s it! A little spray paint for background effect, a simple tree drawing filled in with paint, some shimmering three dimensional paint, lots of beautiful colored buttons and some glue.

Vibrant Button Tree on Canvas

    I’d love to win because this is an awesome project! Full stop. I would love to try to recreate it! Pick me!

      I’m a teacher and am always looking for inexpensive crafts for my students. Funny that you used buttons, I had buttons my mother gave me to use in the classroom. I showed my students how they could make flowers using the buttons. We even used decorative cupcake holders for flowers and placed a huge button in the middle.

      Why I would love to win, for my kids. I would love to bring in a different medium using paints. And, a teacher can’t have enough buttons! No, I am not an art teacher. I teach all subjects but truly believe that art/crafting allows for creative expression in my classroom. Thanks for the ideas!

      Amanda,

      I loved the tutorial for the canvas tree. I just had to try and make it. I have absolutely no talent at all and have never tried crafts. I knew I had to try this one. I could not have done it without your tutorial.
      Thank you so very much. Brenda Griffin

    Renee Reiman from Renee's Craft Cottage says:

    I love the idea and can think of 2 variations that I would love to do, a Cherry Blossom tree using various pink and white buttons or a fall tree in the change of season colors using orange/yellow/gold/red buttons. Even a large Maple leaf would look cool with the dimensional paint and colored buttons to fill in.
    The color I liked best in the Copper!! it is my color choice this year.

  52. 52
    teemunk says:

    Working with buttons as a medium is so relaxing. I’ve purchased buttons from Buttons Galore in the past. My favorite are the 1lb bags! Also, since I collect buttons I’m always looking for an additional way to craft with them. This is the best button tree I’ve seen yet! I’ll try using the dimensional paints on the buttons themselves too, to give them an additional pop. You did a great job on your tree!

    [...] This is the end result of my button tree. Gluing the buttons is the most time consuming part. I started by laying out all of the buttons, haphazardly of course. Then I took the tacky glue and worked in sections to glue each button. Originally I was going to go with the first Pin I found, but earlier this day, I found another Pin, and decided to use that as an example. It can be found by clicking on this sentence that is underlined. [...]
