I am making this letter using buttons. I used the following items to create my picture canvas.
A canvas, buttons, glue, paper, ruler and pencil.
Draw or print out letter to fit the size of the canvas
Turn the piece of paper over and using a pencil colour over the outline. Turn the paper over and place on the canvas and draw around the outline.
You will now have a faint outline drawn on the canvas
Using glue on the back of a button stick down onto the canvas to make the basic shape of the letter. I used a hot glue gun, but you could use a cold glue gun or PVA glue.
Gradually build up layers of different buttons. If you are using a glue gun don’t worry if there are fine bits of glue attached to your work (on the buttons above) as this will pull off when dry.
The finished letter K.
