And here is what I did....
You will need:
1. buttons (duh)
2. closures ( I got these in the kid's jewelry section of WalMart for super cheap)
3. Cording (ditto on where I got it)
First, I cut a piece of cord that was quite a bit bigger than my wrist---I needed room for error.
Then I added the buttons by threading the twin under and over through the button holes. If there were 4 holes than I just used two (diagnal from each other). The buttons wont move along the cording much, so make sure that you thread the first hole---move the button down to where you want it---THEN thread the second hole. I placed mine close to each other, but not overlapping at all.
My helper wanted her own bracelet at this point. Don't you love her little baby afro???? Bad mommy for making a bracelet instead of combing her hair:)
ANYWAY...after you have all of your buttons threaded, you need to tie off both ends. I tried to push the knot as close to the last button as possible without going underneath it.
Then place your closure on there and tie another knot after the closure. After the knot is pulled tight, cut off the extra cording. Do this for both ends and you are done.
Then make sure your helper is not attempting to drink the buttons. Voila---cute summery button bracelet. I am envisioning these with brown buttons, old-fashioned vintage buttons, heart shaped buttons. HELLO!!! I want to make more and more and more of these:)
Fyi--if you make a mini one for your little helper she may stare at her arm in wonder for at least an hour and NEVER want to take it off....I'm just sayin'.
