2015 Easy Craft – Cool Button Bracelet

Standard

I love button bracelets! I like to wear adorable button bracelets of all different colors buttons and cords. So I decide to make some button bracelets for a super bohemian look in 2015!
To make these bracelets you only need plastic buttons and waxed cord. Choose the right color buttons so that they will meet with the color of waxed cord well.
After you select your buttons that you want on your bracelet, thread the ends of a piece of waxed cord into two side-by-side holes of the button. So do the other two holes.
