I have realised that I haven't done any button crafts in a little while. So to say true to the name of this blog, let's get crafting with wire button hearts...

I love this craft and originally used it to create my final piece for my Art GCSE. This peacock design was a gift for my mum. It is a copy from a beautiful design I found online. I don't know who the original artist is but designs are available at: http://theenchantedgarden.net/ . If anyone knows the artist please let me know so I can include it.
1. I started with a blank pane of glass. I used the glass out of a cheap photo frame (please be careful).
2. If you are creating a stained glass piece from a picture, place it underneath the glass and use it as a stencil. Much easier than attempting to copy it freehand. :)
3. Now here is the secret, nail art pens. They really are brilliant and their uses are endless. Using your picture as a template create your basic outline.
