Default Bead 'n' Button Bracelets

materials needed:
elastic thread
permanent marker

Vary the types and colors of beads and buttons to create unique jewelry for any age. Use antique buttons or vary the types and colors of the buttons and beads for a whole different look.

Cut a length of aprox. 12" of clear elastic thread. String a button onto the thread and knot at one end. This button is not used in the final bracelet, it simply helps in the assembly on the beads. Mark the other end of the thread with permanent marker to aid in seeing the end. Thread 5 beads on the thread and add a button, repeat until the bracelet has the look and length desired. Finish bracelet by knotting thread tightly and trimming ends of thread.
