TBC Crafters 9 – Easy Buttons Necklace

Yes, buttons again. Well, I have bought thousands of buttons from Oriental Trading lately when there was sale and am tempted to use them to make beautiful craft pieces. This week, I made an easy buttons necklace. No tool is needed, absolutely none. What I used are only buttons and a piece of ribbon trimming that was given as gift when I ordered fabric from an outlet store. Don’t ask me how much I have ordered. I can only tell you that my hubby is not happy to see all my inventory. Without upset him (well, I always do, sigh~), I hind my stuff in different corners in home. I don’t know how much he has discovered when I was off for overseas in December. When I came home, he just said, “Honey, we really need to clean up and toss all the stuff of no use. We need more space.” Yes Yes Yes, I do need more space for my lovely stuff.

Back to the craft this week, first of all what I need, again just buttons and a piece of ribbon.

Materials

Buttons (I used 3 different sizes, 1 x 1-1/4″, 6 x 1″ and 6 x 3/4″, you can use whatever sizes you want)

A piece of ribbon trimming, 1/8″ in width (thin enough to go through the holes of the buttons)

Steps to craft

1) Line up the buttons in the sequences of the biggest button in the middle, then 3 smaller ones on each side and the smallest ones follow on each side.

2) Pull the ribbon through the button holes, starts from the smallest button to the middle of the necklace.

3) Pull the ribbon through the biggest button from both sides and the necklace is basically finished.

You can wear it just like this and the best part is that you can adjust the length to whatever you like easily.

Or, you can wear it shorter by tying a bow at the back of the biggest button. And it looks more girly this way too.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
