Button Bracelets

While blog surfing, (one of my favorite past times) I came across an idea for a bracelet using buttons. I thought it was so stinking cute, I couldn't wait to make one of my own. I ran to my local craft store, which is Walmart, bought 1/4 inch white elastic and some cute buttons.


First I measured my wrist and cut the elastic to fit. Then I sewed the ends together, overlapping them slightly.




Then I sewed each button on individually.



I made some of the buttons overlap.



It probably took me 30 minutes and about $3-4 total to make the bracelet. And I have a bunch of buttons and elastic left over to make some more.


I found some cute Halloween buttons at Joann and made a Halloween bracelet for my daughter.
