I thought it would be a cute idea to make some leaf buttons and frame them for the Fall season. I’ve seen pumpkins and ghosts made from buttons, but I haven’t seen any leaves so I thought I would give it a shot.
I found these leaf and acorn cut outs at the Dollar Tree (how exciting)! I grabbed a couple frames in different sizes while I was there too. I can never have too many extra frames. Plus, I wanted to see which leaves would fit the best in each frame.
I also made a quick stop at my local craft store to grab some buttons in several different colors and a yard of burlap. I was SO ready to start!
Step 1 – Create Your Button Leaves
The pack of leaves had 2 different styles in it and an acorn. I laid the leaves out and determined which colors I wanted to use for each leaf. I just used regular Elmer’s glue to stick the buttons in place.
Step 2 – Create Your Background
I cut my burlap and laid the leaves over to see which color worked best with the dark burlap. I had some extra scrapbooking paper and used that for one the backgrounds as well.
Step 3 – Finishing Touches
My friend gave me some of her scrapbook paper and I also found this awesome scrabble paper. I cut out the word Autumn and glued it to the bottom of one of the frames. I know Michaels has wooden Scrabble letters you can buy, but I thought this would be super crafty (and free) since I already had it. Two of my favorite things!!
I just love my button leaves and think they look great for my Fall decorations. I can’t wait to try this idea for some other holiday decor as well.
