DIY Wood Letter Button Initial Craft

Materials needed:

  • 1 Wooden letter
  • 1 bag of colored buttons
  • Acrylic paint and Foam brush (We bought white letters, so we didn’t need the paint. If you have naked wood, you may want to paint it before applying your buttons)
  • Hot glue gun or glue dots
  • Ribbon

Step 1: (for naked wood) Using a foam brush, paint letter with acrylic paint. Allow to dry for at least 10 minutes. You may want to do two coats.

Step 2: Attach a button to your glue dot and lift it up off of the adhesive backing. If you’re using a glue stick, drop dots onto the wooden letter as you go to glue the buttons on.

Step 3: Apply your buttons to the wooden letter. Repeat until the surface of the letter is completely covered.

Step 4: Cut a length of ribbon to hang your letter. Attach the ribbon with your glue gun (it holds the weight better than a glue dot)

I love this fun button initial craft because you can do it with your kids for Mother’s Day. If you’re using glue dots, younger kids can help out, while older kids should be able to do the entire craft without adult supervision. Because the wooden letters are less than $2, you can one initial like we did or you can spell MOM, or words like HAPPY or LOVE as well as a person’s name. Whatever you decide, just get creative and have fun!
