Spring time is in the air! It is time to start decorating the mantel for Easter and I decided I wanted a fun picture frame to show off the girl’s new spring pictures. I didn’t want to buy another frame because to be honest…I have a TON of frames I am not using. Repurposing an old frame seemed like a more economic idea. I found an oval frame and knew instantly that it would make a perfect DIY Spring Button Picture Frame project!

The great thing about this project is that it can be made specific to your personal decor tastes. I liked using an oval frame because I think it resembles an Easter egg. Any shape frame will work though. It is also easy to coordinate your button colors to match the colors in your photo.

How to Make a DIY Spring Button Picture Frame
First you need to have a game plan for the color scheme you want for your frame. I wanted my frame to have lots of pretty pastel spring colors along with a lot of white buttons.
I like to glue a flat layer of buttons all over the frame so it has good coverage to hide the frame itself.
Next you will just do random layering of more buttons until you like the way it looks.
Remember that hot glue burns HURT and be careful when you are gluing the buttons down. I just use a small dab of hot glue for each button. Some of the glue will push through on the buttons that have holes in them.
Once you have glued all the buttons you want onto the frame, allow the glue to dry. Now you can cut off all the little glue strands that hot glue always leaves behind.

Do you make any button crafts? I kind of have an obsession with buttons and am trying to get creative with different ways to use them. Check out this fun button craft for Father’s Day! Do you have pictures taken of your kids during the spring?
