one of my favourite little girl’s bedrooms.

To get started you need a canvas, craft paint and paint brush, chalk, buttons, and a glue gun. 

Start by painting your canvas with one or two coats of craft paint in a colour of your choice. I used a pearl sheen purple colour made by Martha Stewart Crafts. 
Once the paint is dry, use some chalk to sketch out the initial (or shape) you want to ‘button’.
I started by adding buttons at each tip, then placed the buttons gently onto the canvas along the chalked lines until I was happy with the shape and design. 
Once you are happy with the design, go ahead and use your hot glue gun to attach the buttons…. 
when done and dry, gently brush the chalk away with a dry paint brush. 
 Finished! Hang and enjoy!!
