I'm thinking a project that would help reduce her massive collection of old buttons might be a pretty good thing.
So here it is our version; a simple, fun, and actually pretty cool looking bracelet project:
|jute and button bracelets|
|step 1 hoop knot for clasp|
Step 2, make another knot about 2" from the hoop knot (this knot will keep your button in the right place while wearing).
|step 2 knot two|
|step 3 tape end of jute|
|stage 4 feed the jute through the holes|
Step 5, pull the jute tight and make a third knot just on the other side of button (when around your wrist the button should be centered like a watch).
|step 5 backside / third knot|
Step 6, adding the final clasp button piece. Again feed a single strand of jute through the button hole, allow enough material to wrap your wrist, tie off at the end, then cut off excess jute.
|step 6 adding the clasp button and the final knot|
About 5 minutes later that's it (pretty simple and kinda cool looking)!!
This is a "crazy simple' fun family project that has enormous Christmas gift potential...
