Blooming Buttons Wall Hanging

Materials needed: Project page printed out on thicker paper, acrylic paints, scissors, embroidery floss, buttons of different sizes/shapes/colors, craft glue, clear tape. Optional: colored pencils, crayons, oil pastels, embroidery needle.

Simplify: younger artists can glue buttons on with craft glue instead of sewing; embroidery floss or yarn can be attached to the back of each paper blossom with clear tape // Elevate: using an embroidery needle, carefully hold a button in the center of each flower and leaf, and - beginning in the back - sew the button onto the paper, finishing with the floss in the back of the flower. Create a gap of an inch and a half or so, and begin sewing or attaching the next flower or leaf.
