Vintage Button Bracelet

Who doesn't love vintage button crafts? Make a Vintage Button Bracelet from Candace Jedrowicz from your grandma's collection of old odds and ends. This is trendy and cute.

Vintage Button Bracelet


  • Buttons
  • Bead embroidery thread
  • Beading needle
  • A selection of accent beads
  • Elastic ribbon


  1. I started with several large and small buttons and paired them up.

  2. I began sewing the buttons onto the end of the ribbon, so that I could hide the seam. I spaced the buttons so that the edges touched.
  3. I sewed the buttons on just like I would if I were sewing them on a shirt, making several passes with the thread.
  4. Half of the top buttons are two-holed. This is where I used the accent beads - on top of those buttons so the thread would be hidden.

  5. I alternated the beaded buttons with with the others.
  6. I measured the ribbon on my wrist and cut off the excess leaving a tab to overlap for secure sewing.

  7. When I sewed the ends of the ribbon together and put the bracelet on and realized that the curve of the ribbon opened spaces between the buttons, so I chose some smaller buttons to fill in.

Hi, everyone. Elastic ribbon is simply ribbon that has an elastic, stretchy quality. It is basically patterned or colored elastic. You can most likely find it at your local craft store. Happy crafting! --editors of FaveCrafts

what is elastic ribbon and where do you find it?

Hmmm...where is the answer to this question? I don't know what "elastic ribbon" is?
