Deb Hegarty of Omaha can turn the plainest of picture frames into a one-of-a-kind keepsake with the addition of buttons and charms.
She has been making the embellished frames for about eight years, she said, and can customize their themes for almost any occasion.
Picture frame (any desired size)
Buttons of varying sizes and coordinating colors
Craft charms with a consistent theme (can be purchased by the bag at most craft stores or online)
Hot glue and gun
With the frame lying flat on a surface, begin gluing your buttons onto the frame in a random pattern until you’ve built up a thick layer of buttons.
Add the charms in places around the frame.
Allow to cool.
Difficulty: 2 out of 4
