My kids collect things. Weird things — buttons, bottle caps, broken jewelry, fabric cut from old clothes and, most recently, my old breast pump (to play mad scientist of course). I’m always a bit torn about whether to encourage these collections. But ultimately, I want to nurture the creative, resourceful ideas that develop from these treasures. The following photos are of “treasure art” made from buttons.
One reason we love this kind of art project is that we can photograph it and then dump the buttons back in their container, but if we ever want to keep something, it can be glued to a canvas and kept.
Sometimes we all try to make the same thing.
Good News Everyone: Starting next month, BeARTrageous will be helping me with my craft posts!
