Let's Get Creative: A Button Ring Tutorial
By Debbie Nania
Let's get creative together. The Mermaids love to create together! We'll show you how to make adorable little button rings. They're super easy and fun. Add a bright pop to your spring and summer wardrobe!
They are all so cute. It's hard to choose just one!
So pretty in shades of blue and brown.
Bright and fun!
Get your girlfriends, daughters or neices
together and have some button bling fun!
- Variety of buttons in different sizes and colors. (We found that Joanne Fabrics and Walmart both have great selections of these big, bright buttons)
- E beads in various colors. (E beads are bigger than seed beads and are available most places that sell beading supplies)
- 1mm. stretch string. (We love Stretch Magic and often buy it at Michael's. It is strong and high quality)
- Hypo Cement glue to secure knot. (We buy ours at Michael's. This is the glue that we use on all of our stretch string beading projects. It is super strong and will not make your stretch string brittle)
Let's Get started!
Snip a length of stretch string at approximately six inches.
Thread a bead onto string. (Three beads is a cute alternative)
Thread ends through holes in the smallest button. Layer with the next size and so on.
Thread beads on each side of stretch string.
A ring for an average size middle finger
is approximately 21 beads.
You will need to add or take away beads
depending on the size of your finger)
Tie in a knot and secure it with a tiny drop of Hypo Cement. Immediately tie another knot into the drop of glue.
Let dry for approximately five minutes and snip ends close to knot.
