Merry from Making It Merry saw this lovely button bowl on Pinterest. It seems everybody and their brother’s uncle had re-pinned it so she sifted through all the pins till she got to the original. The artist didn’t explain how to do it but there were multiple comments and a few where people claimed to have replicated the piece.
According to the commenters, it should be as easy as coating a balloon with Elmer’s glue and then laying buttons on it. Once the glue is dry you pop the balloon and Voila! a button bowl. Not to be one to straight “copy,” Merry thought using pieces of stained glass to create a mosaic would be pretty and different.
OK, so 1) maybe the glue was a bit thick and 2) maybe the glass pieces were a bit heavy. What ever the problem may be, what she achieved was epic fail!
