These unfinished cabinet door frames have been laying around in our basement for over a year and I was finally determined to do something with them. Photos on Pinterest of people using buttons to spell out letters had been popping up in my feed, so I thought I could spell the word JOY with my three frames.
After the burlap was wrapped around the sheetrock, I placed it in the painted wood frame.
Here's what my letter looked like after tracing it onto the burlap.
Joanne's sells large packs of different colored buttons - I grabbed both of these packs so I could get some different sizes.
Before I started hot glueing anything, I laid some buttons out on the letters to practice a bit. Some people layer the buttons, others just do a single layer. I opted for the single layer when it was actually time to glue them down - mostly for my safety since I burnt my fingers about 100 times in the process with the hot glue.
After all three of my letter were complete, Brent used hardware like you see below to hook the frames to one another.
