Button Necklace

When I was younger, my mom had a quart jar FULL of nothing but buttons. Small ones, big ones and some of every color. I loved to dump out the buttons and look at each and every one and their unique qualities. You could tell some were very old and had a story all their own. It was so fun to imagine where they all came from! Do you have a bunch of buttons laying around your house, or possibly a jar full of them too? Today Cherie is sharing the funnest Button Necklace in town! This cute necklace is full of buttony goodness and is the perfect project to use your collection of buttons on! Enjoy!

Since I didn’t have a large needle or the desire to go to the store and buy one, I made one out of floral wire, which I also like to use for some of my bows and other crafting. Wire always seems to come in handy! You could make this needle too. It’s really just folding the wire in half and twisting.

Thread your skinny elastic.

Take the needle and elastic through button holes and scrunch the buttons close together.

When there are four holes just go through two of them. Continue threading buttons.

For the focal point of the necklace I added a Mini Vintage Rosette Bow. So cute! I just took the needle and elastic through the ribbon center in the back of the bow.

I added a crown resin to take the necklace over the top! When you are done with the necklace simply tie a double or triple knot it the elastic and you’re done!
