Button up! I got a package of wooden buttons in the mail last week. Perfect for making belts! For those of you that have been reading my earlier posts, you’ve seen the same type of buttons on several earlier projects: button rings, bracelets, name flags, magnets and earrings. This time I’ll make a colorful button belt.
1. Supplies: 40 buttons in different colors and 40 in. twine. The amount of buttons and the length of the twine will of course vary from person to person. Measure around your waist as you make the belt. Start with bending the twine on the middle. 2. Thread the twine through two of the holes in a button and tie a loop. 3. Now thread the twine through all the buttons and tie a knot after the last button making sure they’ll keep in place. Fasten the belt by wrapping the loop around a couple of buttons.
If anyone wonders where I’ve bought the buttons, I found them on eBay. They come in 7 different colors, and the diameter is 20 mm / 0.78 in.
