Craft of the week- Button Bracelet

Although we did many crafts this week, this is one of my favorites to do with Gabby. It does involve lacing string through button holes though so unless you child can do this you may have o do most of the actual work yourself.

elastic cord

How To:
Cut some cord to wrap two times around the wrist. Thread the cord through the button holes, keeping the buttons overlapping. For four hole buttons, criss-cross the cord. It is easier if you flip the bracelet over every other button. The nice thing is that the buttons don't slide off so it is easy to keep them in place. Once you are done then you can either tie it off a couple times, or you can use a crimp bead to secure the cord. Easy as that!!
