Back to School Button Craft. Create a fun button apple art piece in less than fifteen minutes with only a few simple supplies. Perfect for a teacher gift.
Every summer, back to school sneaks up on me.
While I have my red, white, and blue decor up for July, I will soon be adding back to school decor around my home in August. This will be my daughter’s first year of school, so we will be trying to make it extra special for her.

How to Make a Button Apple Craft for Back to School
- White Cardstock
- Paper Trimmer
- Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
- Coordinating Patterned Paper (optional)
- Double-sided Adhesive (optional)
Start by trimming an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of white card stock to 4″ x 6″.
Then, glue the buttons into place. I started with the outline and filled it in.
Note: After doing this project, I think it is easier to start from the center and work out. I ended up with more white space than I would like.
After adding all the red buttons, I added green and brown buttons for the leaf and stem.
Trim red gingham patterned paper to 5″ x 7″ and attach the apple button art to the patterned paper with double-sided adhesive.
The navy blue frame I already had on hand and complimented the colors so well.
You could easily add some letter stickers or vinyl to the frame or bottom of the art to personalize this frame for a back to school or end of school year gift for your favorite teacher.
