Button necklaces!
They are really easy to make, and so much fun! You could easily make these with kids too. Just choose some pretty buttons and string them. I used waxed cotton cord in matching colors, but you could use yarn, linen, hemp or silk if you’re feeling super fancy. The hardest part is choosing the buttons!
I used a mixture of new buttons and vintage ones. Some of those are quite old and I think some might be bakelite. They get to stand out now, instead of being buried in the bottom of my button jars.


 

I’m thinking of having a little givewaway for some of these. What do you think?
