Sorry that I am late but it is 9:45pm PST and I still have time for my TBC Crafters Hop Thursday craft. My kids are having their Spring Break and they won’t sleep as early as normal. It leaves me so little “ME” time for doing my stuff, of course including my craft project. Originally, I wanted to make an Easter bunny for my girl. Then, I saw my buttons… yes, my so many unmatched colorful buttons…plus the beads that I picked up with my daughter in Goodwill some time ago. This is a necklace using buttons and beads in a fun, free way.
Materials needed: –
40 Buttons of various colors and sizes
12 Beads of either different colors or the same color
1 piece of 1/8″ wide ribbon
1 center pendant or slider
1) Arrange the pendant or slider in the middle of the ribbon necklace, then add 2 pieces of beads on each side.
2) Pull 10 buttons through the ribbon on each side, followed by 2 beads, then 10 more buttons on each side and finally another 2 beads each side.
3) Tie a knot at the 2 ends of ribbon and put in 1 bead from each side, then tie another knot to secure. Remember to heat seal the 2 ends of the ribbon by running a lighter close by it.
It is a fun and easy the little children can do it. The beauty is that you can arrange the buttons and beads with a pattern or you can do it totally by random. My girl is sitting next to me doing her own drawing project and wearing this necklace when I am typing this blog post. I really want to have the hourglass stops at this moment and it is just sweet and so self-satisfactory watching my girl drawing like I did when I was her age.
