This button craft is a delight for kids and easy for moms (simple supplies and little clean up!). Your kids will love getting creative as they learn how to make a button bracelet. Kids Activities Blog hopes you enjoy these easy bracelets to make with your kids.
A button craft is a great way for kids to have fun and express their creativity. These button bracelets are quick and simple to make, and they are made from items that you probably already have around the house.
These bracelets make great gifts that kids can make for mother’s day, Christmas or friends’ birthdays. This is also a great activity for fine motor skills with all that threading and sewing.
Make a Button Bracelet
To make a button bracelet all you need are some buttons, a length of ribbon or elastic, and a pair of scissors. Depending on the size of the holes in your buttons, you may also need a sewing needle. The type of ribbon or cord that you use for threading the buttons will depend on the size of the holes in the buttons. You need the holes to be large enough for your ribbon to be threaded through either by hand or with the assistance of a needle.
Easy Bracelets to Make
Weave the ribbon through the buttons, coming up from underneath the button, crossing over the top, and dipping back down again on the other side of the button as shown in the photo above. This will ensure that the buttons sit neatly side by side and the bracelet will sit comfortably flat on the wearer’s wrist. Once you have threaded on enough buttons for the length of your bracelet, tie the two ends of ribbon together and you’re done!
It’s fun to come up with unique patterns and designs. Try experimenting with different sized buttons like we did, or use a mixture of patterned and plain buttons. You could even make a matching button necklace. These button bracelets are fun for both boys and girls. We made one in Spiderman colors as a gift for a friend of my son’s and the recipient was thrilled by it.
