Use Painter's® to paint buttons and let dry.

Use White Paint Marker to paint designs on buttons using dots, stripes, spirals, zig zags and plaid, keeping a few solid color buttons undecorated. Let dry.

Plan placement of buttons on frame by positioning one color at time for even color distribution. (Note: Set aside one medium and two small buttons to attach to glass. Also set aside one large, one medium and five small buttons to embellish shelf.)
After deciding arrangement, use CraftBond™ Quick Dry Glue Dual Tip Pen to attach buttons to frame and glass. Let dry.

For shelf, position buttons and use Quick Dry Glue to attach. (Note: Support shelf with book to make it level while it dries.)
