I was starting a new project for my entertainment center. I had all these small picture frames and one large frame. For the small frames, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I turned my small frames into my JOY framed Christmas decor post.
Unfortunately, the large frame was not as easy for me…
I really wanted to use something I already had and not run to Michaels again. I added some other wood sayings I had, but it just didn’t look right.
I even tried adding some of my kids Christmas artwork held by a decorative clothespin, but that was a no go.
I started walking through my home, and noticed my button heart craft I made for Valentines hanging on the wall. I laid it in the middle of my frame and totally liked it!! It looked good against the pallet and really stood out.
My hubby (the creative person he is) walked over to give his opinion and said “Why don’t you turn it upside down and make it a Christmas tree?”
Why don’t you turn it upside down and make it a Christmas tree?
Ding!! A light went off and we had a plan!!
I didn’t want to mess up the existing picture, so we added some glue dot adhesives to the back of the brown and yellow buttons. They will be easy to remove after Christmas and not destroy the canvas.
Side Note: If you enjoyed this (and love kids crafts), then I think you’ll really like this scrapbook paper christmas tree art I made with the boys.
So that’s how I turned my button heart into a button Christmas tree.
There is actually a funny story behind the name. I sent my friend a text saying “I turned my heart into a Christmas tree” (all excited)! But I guess I forgot to send the attachment…
I turned my heart into a Christmas tree…
Well to say the least she was confused (I think she thought I was full of Christmas spirit). So now me and my hubby have a new inside joke about it.
Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!!
