Tutorial: Button Bracelet

Craft Tutorial: How to make a simple button braceletI love buttons. They come in so many colors, shapes and sizes. Of course, like every good sewing enthusiast, I have a jar filled with a collection of my button treasures. Every time I see a button bracelet on Pinterest or Etsy I think, "I should make something like that." But alas, my button jar has sat on a shelf, untouched, until now.

I'll warn you right now, this project is addictive! Once you spill those brightly colored buttons across the table, you will see so many irresistible color combinations that you may not be able to stop yourself. The good news is that these bracelets make quick and inexpensive gifts, and the kids may even want to join you in your button sorting and stringing fun!

Materials


  • buttons, buttons, buttons
  • cotton braiding cord or 20 lb hemp cord
  • scissors
  • measuring tape

Directions

Go ahead. Dump out all those beautiful buttons!

You'll be using 4-hole buttons for the length of the bracelet and a large 2-hole button for the closure.
Measure around your wrist.

Choose your buttons and lay them in a line that is the length of your wrist plus an inch.

Cut a length of cord that's about 5 times longer that your wrist.
Fold the cord in half.

Tie a knot in the folded end to form a loop that your large 2-hole closure button can pass through.

Set the closure button aside.
Add your first button by stringing the two lengths of cord up through the bottom of a 4-hole button.

Slide the button down to the loop and knot.
Next, secure the button by making an "X" with the cord as you string it down through the remaining two holes.
Add the next button by stringing the cord up through the bottom being careful not to twist the cord ends.

Slide the button down the cord until it touches the first button. They should be able to lay flat, side by side.
Secure the second button by making an "X" with the cord as you string it down through the remaining two holes.
Continue adding buttons until your bracelet is the desired length.
Finally, add the large closure button by stringing the cord up through the bottom of the button.
Again, slide the button down until it touches the previous button and they can lay flat, side by side.

Finish off by tying a knot and trimming the cord.

You can use similarly sized and colored buttons.
