How to Make a Button Ring
Buttons are such a versatile craft component, I’m forever using them in different craft projects. You can pick up so many beautiful buttons in all different types of materials, shapes and sizes at such reasonable prices in can be hard to resist picking up a few every now and again!
Jewellery making is a great way of using up buttons if your hoard is getting a little too big! This button ring is the perfect beginners project if you’ve never made any jewellery before. You could even have a go at making all sorts of other projects, from bracelets to earring, necklaces to bag charms.

- Repeat steps one and two until all the loops have alternating buttons and beads attached to them.
In The Pink
For a more subtle daytime look, mix up some buttons in different tones of pink. Experiment with texture by using some shaped buttons too.
