I have a jar of buttons that I’m saving for someday, well that someday has come. I have been making simple button bracelets for my daughter and myself. Today I’m going to share a simple design that’s going to make you raid your button box.
Start by cutting a length of floss. If your button has 4 holes, insert the floss from the backside into one of the holes, come to the front side of the button then down into the hole next to the one you came out of. It will make a loop, before pulling the loop tight to the button, pull the 2 strings from the backside up through the loop, making a kind of knot. See the pictures. Repeat for the other side. To wear tie it onto the wrist. You could place a clasp on one end and jump ring on the other for easy on and off.
Another idea for a 4 hole button is to insert the floss into the hole from the backside and down into the hole diagonal to it. Then with another piece of floss do the same with the other two holes. Then flip the button over and tie the different two strings together, this will hold the button in place.
If you have a 2 hole button, bring the floss up from the backside through the hole and tie a knot at the side of the button. Then do the same on the other side.
A cute addition to any outfit.
