The other day, a button fell off one of my coats, and instead on sewing it back on I decided to turn it into a new bracelet! Once I made one, I could not stop. Instead of ripping the fasteners off all my jackets I stopped by M&J Trimming and stared at the "wall of buttons" for far too long, and picked out a bunch. Next on my list is a summer set made with Nautical buttons!
Supplies: 1 yard of wax rope, 2 buttons (one large and one small)
I can't wait to mix these in with my everyday wrist of bracelets.
Make in a million colors, steps after the break!
Step 1: Cut 4 pieces of wax cord each a 1.5ft long
Step 2: Take 1 piece of cord and thread through a hole of the larger button and pull to the center. Take a second piece of cord and do the same with a hole next to the first. Tie a knot. Repeat on the opposite side.
Step 3: After knotting, braid the four ends (double up one strand)
Step 4: Repeat on the opposite side.
Step 5: On one side, knot at the end of the braid, then thread each of the stings through each hole of the smaller button. Then knot above the button.
Step 6: On the opposite side create a loop by braiding to the end and then knotting the cord to itself. Put the button through the loop to fasten.
