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.

vacation

My kids were on fall break last week, so we went to the beach! Gulf Shores to be exact!




It was our first time at the beach!



We stayed in a condo- that had this fantastic view from the balcony!



We loved it! But are back to the grind today!


...craftiness to come....
