How To Make A Button Necklace

How To Make a Button Necklace Video Tutorial from Nikki McGonigal on Vimeo.

I love, love, love button necklaces.

I’ve been wanting to play around with making one myself, but was waiting to find the right buttons.  As I was strolling through the aisles of my local craft store recently, I hit the jackpot!

I’m a teacher at heart, and that’s my favorite part of blogging…showing my readers that really anyone can make these projects.  And, as someone who creates things by hand, I appreciate the time and skill that goes into hand-crafted, one of a kind items.

I promise, with the video provided above and all of the materials by your side, you can not only make this necklace, but you will love it even more, knowing that your own hands put the whole thing together.

Enjoy!

Nikki, In Stitches

      Hi Doreen!
      I’m so happy you love the necklace!
      I have to be honest and say I really just use whatever size crimp bead I have the works. You are putting A LOT of threads through there so it can’t be too tiny!!
