Button Monogram

These have been floating around blogland for a while and I have been waiting for the opportunity to make one. I obtained all of these buttons from a cool site named Freecycle.com. It is similar to Craigslist but all the items are FREE! I put out a message that I was looking for some buttons and someone responded. I picked up three checkbook boxes full of buttons. I printed out the first letter of our last name (I used Elephant font) and traced it on a piece of cardboard backed canvas. Then I got out my trusty glue gun and went to town. This was an extrodinarily easy project. I just spent a little of extra time arranging the buttons.

I think it turned out great and can't wait to see it on my faux mantle once it is done. I may decide to embelish it a little more as well. Now if only we could have spring weather so I can get my painting done. We are supposed to get 5-8 inches of SNOW today!


  1. Hey, nice site you have here! Keep up the excellent work!
