Antique Button Bracelet

My daughter saw a button bracelet on Pintrest and I thought I would give it a try.  What do you think?

The buttons are from my grandfather's antique button collection and I strung them on some red and white bakers twine. I chose to use all red buttons as I thought I would wear a red bracelet as I am not much of a bracelet person as they seem to dangle and get in the way of my computer work.

The source of the bracelet idea is Hope Studios and she gives a complete pictorial tutorial of how she created hers.  Very easy to follow and to fit my wrist I loop it over the next to the last button to fit more snugly and is really cute and funky.   I think the next one I make will have the buttons all overlapping, I'll show it to you when I get it done, It will be in silver buttons.

Hope you liked my little diversion from cards and hope you are having a great week-end.

Thanks for stopping by.
