My Birthday Necklace

By: Maria Nerius, Resident Craft Expert

Have some fun on your birthday and let the world know you are celebrating! This necklace craft project by Maria Nerius is part buttons and part beads.

Birthday Necklace


  • Happy Birthday Favorite Findings button set (4)
  • 3 Cupcake beads (Rings & Things)
  • Assortment of E beads (pink, green, purple, blue)
  • Jewelry elastic


  1. You can vary the length of this necklace by adding more E beads. This necklace measures 18”. Cut your jewelry elastic to the measurement you want for the necklace plus at least 5-6”. I used a 24” piece to create this necklace.
  2. Sort out the candle buttons from the other buttons in the assortment. You can use the other buttons for a different project!
  3. You can work side to side or work from the center out (working both raw sides of the elastic). Working one side to the other, thread on: 5 blue E beads, 1 purple E bead, 5 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 5 purple, 1 blue, 5 purple, 1 pink, 5 purple, 1 green, 5 purple, 5 blue, 1 pink, 5 blue, 1 green, 5 blue, 1 candle button, 1 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 1 candle button, 1 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 1 candle button, 1 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 1 candle button, 1 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 1 candle button, 1 blue, 1 pink, 1 green, 1 candle button, 2 pink, 1 cupcake bead, 2 pink, 1 cupcake bead, 2 pink, 1 cupcake bead, two pink.
