Make Bracelet

Tools needed for this bracelet (above)

  • String or elastic cord
  • Buttons
  • Scissors
  • Your imagination

Directions: We used thin cord for this project

  • Measure the desired length for the bracelet-
  • Sew the string through the button holes
  • Tie a knot
  • Done!
  • To make it a hanging decoration: Glue the string to the top


  • determine desired length for the bracelet-make it at least 4 inches longer so that it will be easy to tie
  • If you use Elastic Cord in place of string - it's easier to put on and take off. Maybe you have one from a gift left over?
  • As a recycle project we suggest you use old buttons


Mix it with beads!

  • Have beads from old jewelry? Mix them in for a different look.
  • Make your own clay beads using Planetpals clay crafts recipes and add them
