Recycle mismatched and extra buttons to make this unique choker; a wonderful gift that costs less than a dollar to make!
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
2 yards thin hemp cord
21 beads from old necklace
super glue (optional)
Cut hemp cord to length of 2 yards.
Double cord and make an overhand knot at the folded end, leaving a loop large enough to fit button to be used as clasp at very end through.
String beads and buttons alternately, "sewing" cord through buttons in a vertical line so that one piece of the hemp goes over and through one side of the button while the other does so simultaneously; this gives the piece stability.
At the very end of the choker, tie a square knot before and after the button to be used as the "clasp," reinforce knots with super glue if desired; show off your new piece of jewelry!
