How to Make a Button Bracelet - A Tutorial

Pin It

I have Husbands Grandmother's buttons, and this past weekend we had a family reunion with his brother and sisters. I wanted to do something for just the Ladies. 
And here is what I made, Button Bracelets
I had seen the bracelets on Pinterest, but no instructions so here is how "I" did it ! ! 

First the buttons

I laid each bracelet out and made sure that each one had at least one button the same in each bracelet, the white ones

For the bracelet you need one's with 4 holes, I used 7 per bracelet
and then 1 button with just 2 holes for the end, to use as the clasp.

I used cord "Jewelry Designer Satin Rattail"  cord 
5.49 m

I cut the length about 24" long = double it over

Tie a knot in the end, this will be where the end clasp button goes through

Pull the cord up and then down over the other side. 

When you cross over and come up again this is when you need to 
have the other cord end UNDER that closing to hold it in place.

Pull the cross stitch tight, and start the process over
with the cord NOT used on the first button and do 
it all again. 

I left space between each button.

When you get to the end, leave about a 1 inch of cord 
and add the 2 hole button, tie a knot at each hole

This is the end button which will become the clasp button

I made 7 bracelets 

I made gift cards as I'm pretty sure no one remembers I have these buttons.
