On the button necklace bandwagon

February 22, 2010 at 6:40 am 3 comments

I don’t know if you have noticed, too, but button necklaces have been popping up everywhere. I’d seen them all over Etsy, and in the windows of the fabric store in downtown Maryville. I’ve thought about making them but hadn’t gotten around to it. When I saw it on this blog, I finally decided it was time. It’s the perfect mindless task while watching TV. Plus, I already had all of the supplies – score!

I used white satin ribbon instead of cord, because I had it on hand. I also made a crazy long necklace – I can wear it with one loop down past my waist, or a double loop or a triple loop – the triple loop is my favorite. It would also make a super cute garland for a small tree.

I’m not really sure this necklace was business suit/job appropriate but … meh. You have to have some fun, right?

    Neat idea. I love recycling old buttons in a fun way. I used to play with buttons that my grandma kept in a big box when I was a kid. I imagined they were a real tresure – no far from the truth.

    It looks great !

    Ok- not for a business suit, but with everything else it looks creative and somehow very charming and playful šŸ™‚
