4th of July Button Art American Flag Craft and Decor
Independence Day is one of my favorite holidays to celebrate and I LOVE making 4th of July Crafts for decorating with! I also love buttons and have a lot of fun coming up with ideas to use my many buttons, whether fancy buttons or just plain old shirt buttons. This Button Art American Flag is created with plain blue, white, and red shirt buttons and I think it turned out really fun!
This is the perfect craft to do with the kids. It's also one of those crafts that can be used as home decor for the holiday or all year long!! We love Americana at our house!
Once you’ve sorted the buttons and decided on the layout, spread a thin layer of glue and begin placing your buttons. I worked from the top left, adding the blue buttons first. Spread the glue in small amounts so you can easily attach the buttons before the glue begins to dry.
After you have placed all of the blue buttons, add a strip of glue and begin attaching the red and white buttons in alternating rows. I used buttons that were all the same size and color but you could do varying shades and sizes of red or white to give added texture.
