Button Heart Craft

Submitted by Anne Davies
Anne Davies explains how you can use buttons and wire to make this heart craft.

  • Age Guideline: 8 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 60 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Cut a length of craft wire and twist both ends together. Bend the wire to make a heart shape. Tie a piece of ribbon or raffia to the top of the heart to make a hanger.

Thread a needle with a piece of beading wire. Wrap one end of the beading wire around the heart frame. Sew your first button to the frame by pushing the needle through the holes in the button and then securing the beading wire to the heart frame at the back. Repeat with further buttons until all of the heart frame is covered.

Quick tip: the buttons will lie flatter if you overlap them slightly.
