Begin by choosing your design and painting an image on to a blank canvas.
We used a bare tree for our basic shape, but it would also be fun to fill a solid shape with buttons as well (a giant button heart, for example, would be really cute too!).
Collect your buttons and put them into a large pile. This step can also serve as a fantastic lesson about sorting by shape, size and color for younger children.
Use a small amount of Tacky Glue to attach the buttons to the canvas.
Continue adding buttons until you are satisfied with the way it looks. You can even choose to layer buttons upon buttons for extra dimension! Allow glue to dry thoroughly before hanging.
