- Wood wall plaques - 2 five-inch and 3 seven-inch.
- Old paint brush handle about 12 inches
- wood glue
- drill for the holes
The plaques were $1.47 and 99 cents at Hobby Lobby.
Next, find the center and measure out evenly to mark the four places for holes in the buttons and drill. The holes need to be large enough to accommodate the jute you will be using and, well, to look like buttons.
Paint the buttons absolutely any color you want! I mixed some small bottles of craft store acrylics to get the hues I wanted.
In the center above, you can see the "needle" my husband made with an old paint brush. He took the brush portion off, sanded the top to round it and the bottom to get more of a point. After drilling an eye hole at the top, I painted it metallic silver.
I threaded the jute though each button to make an x and tied them off in back. Put some tape on the end of the jute to make it easier to thread it through.
You could put these up individually or stack and glue them as I did. Once I decided on the placement, I used some wood glue where the pieces meet and clamped them together. You could stack books on them if you don't have clamps. Don't use too much glue! It will just ooze out the side when you press the pieces together. My wood glue (Titebond) dried clear, but wipe off any excess as you go along to be sure.
