DIY Crafts: Button Bracelets

We came across this simple and fun craft while perusing DIY ideas on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl last night. We love the results and think you will too! It took only a few materials and 10 minutes time for us to recreate these adorable button bracelets! They are great as little gifts or favors, and make a great summertime accessory!

Materials:

  • 1 large button
  • 1 small button
  • 4 1.5-ft pieces of twine or string of choice

Directions:

Follow this step by step tutorial from I Spy DIY that has helpful pictures. But we have summarized below!

  1. Basically thread each string halfway through the large button holes.
  2. Tie each pair of strings into a knot. Braid the strings (doubling up one string).
  3. On one side knot the braid, thread the four strings through the smaller button. Tie another knot after the small button. Trim your extra string.
  4. On the other side braid completely and create a loop by knotting the braid with itself!
  5. Wear your bracelet with pride!

Here’s how our bracelet turned out!
