Intro: Button Ice Cream / Cupcake Wall Art

Make 3D ice cream cones and cupcakes that are inspired by iconic pop artist Andy Warhol, and the "Here's The Scoop Party Invitations" project found on the Joann's website.



Step 1: Materials

Here's what you'll need to make these non-edible artworks...

  • a large piece of plywood
  • acrylic paints
  • sponge brushes
  • paint brush
  • painter's tape
  • small buttons
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • pencil
  • ruler

Step 2: Prepare the Plywood

First, prepare the plywood for painting by dividing it into 4 rectangular sections with a pencil. Then, outline the sections with a few thin pieces of painter's tape.

Step 3: Paint the Plywood

Now, paint each section of your plywood a different color. The colors that you choose will be the contrasting colors of your small buttons.

Step 4: Make the Ice Cream Cones and Cupcakes

Now, lightly sketch an outline of an ice cream cone and cupcake, 2 for each section. Then, grab your buttons and make 2 ice cream scoop shapes on two of the painted sections using a hot glue gun. Then, paint cones and cupcake wrappers, again 2 for each section, with matching colors.

Step 5: Display

Now, it's the perfect work of art for your wall or a gift for someone! Sweet!
