I follow a lot of crafters on Instagram and really enjoy one in particular called “Get Creative With”. Each week is a new challenge to get creative. Last week’s challenge was Get Creative With Buttons. I don’t always participate, but I thought this one would be particularly fun.
We chose to do Rainbow Button Frames. I picked up wooden frames at Michaels for $1 each. I picked up some buttons there too but also ordered some from Amazon that I was very happy with. We already have plenty of paint so I really didn’t need to purchase any other supplies.
First, we painted the frames with solid acrylic paint. Once that dried, we painted over it with glitter paint. Then, we each picked out the buttons we wanted to use and glued those into place. We also added some sparkles that we had on hand. Gavin even painted over some of his buttons.
I searched for some fun rainbow images online and printed those out to put in our frames. I loved the positive messages and cheerful colors of these frames. The frames will be a fun addition to our playroom. I also think this would be a fun craft project for a rainbow birthday party or summer art camp!
Those turned out great!! This might be next year’s birthday party activity. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Amy! So glad you like them! We had so much fun making them!
This looks like such a fun thing to make!
I might have to make this with my daughter.

So simple and so cute!! My kind of craft!
This is so cute! I have SO MANY mismatched buttons from my moms past sewing hobby. I can’t wait until my son is old enough to enjoy sorting and playing with these and doing crafts like this one!
These frames are adorable! So bright and perfect for spring. I love the rainbow quotes you found to put inside them too.
This is such a fun project to do with my son when he gets “bored” with all his toys. It would also make a perfect rainy day craft! Love it!
