Things You Can Do with Buttons - Idea #3

Button Idea #3 - Use as a closure on friendship bracelets.

A button is a great stylish way to add a closure to a friendship bracelet. My sister is the friendship bracelet maker in our family & she made this stylish bracelet using one of my ceramic leaf buttons. She started out the bracelet by first threading all of the strings through the button holes then braiding the bracelet. She tied a knot at the end of the bracelet & left about 1" gap of unbraided string and tied another knot. This way the button can slip through the unbraided string section & hold your bracelet closed.
I found this great website for friendship bracelets with tons of free patterns ranging from easy to difficult. Check it out!

Do you have any button ideas? I would love to hear about them!
