Button Necklace

Tools and Materials

  • buttons
  • beading string, cut to 40 inches
  • crimp bead
  • necklace closure
  • needle-nose pliers



  1. Fold the string in half, and create an end by tying two slipknots 2 inches down from the fold.
  2. Slip a button on one string. Tie another slipknot 1 inch from the previous knot. Repeat until you have 12 buttons on the string. Make as many strands as you like. Trim the ends (not the looped end) 2 inches from the last knot.
  3. Gather all the ends together, and crimp in a crimp bead. Attach the necklace closure using a pair of needle-nose pliers.
