I'm all about mother daughter activities, and this DIY Button Art Flower Craft is no different! Whether you're making this for Mom, or with Mom, make it extra special by adding a note on the back of the frame.

On a flat surface, use a paper trimmer to trim your pattern to 8×10. Check to make sure it fits into the frame before you affix your buttons.

I like to set aside my unique buttons and use them last, or on the top so they show. I put my boring buttons on the pattern first.

Using hot glue, begin to affix your buttons. Begin with yellow, followed by orange, and last, white. You will want to do one layer at a time and don't worry too much about spaces and gaps. As long as the gap can be covered with another button on the next layer, you're fine. I also like to overlap the outer edge of the pattern a bit. You'll notice the white buttons extend beyond the edge.

When your first layer of buttons is complete, follow with a second. Place the second layer of buttons between two on the first layer. This will create more dimension and a random look. Follow with a third layer, or pepper a few more buttons here and there to create a little more dimension.

When finished, use a dry toothbrush to “scrub” away all of the hot glue strings.

To place in your frame, you need to put it in front of the glass. Place it in the frame, follow with the glass, secure the frame shut and you're finished!
