Are you looking for a DIY craft project that’s fun, simple, and looks great? If so, then creating your very own mosaic out of assorted buttons may be the perfect project for you. This project calls for only a minimum of materials, and the result is always unique and colorful. And because the process is so simple, the potential for customization is virtually limitless. This is a great craft to do with the kids; just make sure to supervise all Super Glue use.

First, use a pencil to draw an outline of your design on the canvas. The mosaic above is a stag, but you can design anything with a large outline and minimal detailing. Once you have your design, all you need to do is adhere the buttons in place using Super Glue, use one of our precision applicators to perfectly place each drop. You can get a large amount of assorted buttons on eBay if you don’t already have them lying around. Fill in your outline with the buttons in random order to create the effect of the sample mosaic. Or, arrange the colors in patterns to create a design within your design. The only limit is your own imagination.
