1. Sketch a simple image on the canvas. Create large areas where you can group buttons of the same color or color scheme. Draw flowers, birds, race cars, robots — use your imagination!
2. Decide on a color scheme for your painting and use paints to color in the background. This will act as a guide for button placement and also define your painting when viewed from across the room.
3. Use a hot glue gun to add your buttons to the painting. For a 3-D look from all sides, consider gluing buttons to the edges of the canvas as well.
4. Step back and admire your creation. Attach a simple hanger and hang it on the wall. Or display your piece in a bookcase.
