Supplies Needed to Make a Button Picture Frame:
The supply list for this craft is short, just how I like it. All you need is:
- unfinished wood frame – I bought this one for 99 cents at the craft store, but you can also buy a frame from the dollar store. I prefer using a wider frame so there is more surface area for the buttons.
- assorted buttons – these care from the Dollar Tree
- hot glue gun and hot glue sticks –
- Mother’s Day printable – click the button below to download:
A note about the hot glue: I feel comfortable letting my kids use a hot glue gun – with adult supervision, of course! But if you prefer, you can use regular craft glue. You just need to allow for extra dry time. It’s your call.
