Button Bracelets

Turn felt and buttons into fashionable armwear. Your child can show her true colors with these fast and easy bracelets.


  • Assorted buttons (from a craft store, a favorite outgrown piece of clothing, or your family's sewing kit)
  • E-Z Felt
  • Needle and thread
  • Decorative-edge scissors


To make each bracelet, first cut a strip of felt 1 1/2 inches wide and long enough to wrap around your child's wrist, overlapping by about 1 inch.

VariationsSew a button at one end of the felt and cut a matching buttonhole at the other. Now adorn the felt strip with more sewn-on buttons, and your bracelet is ready to wear.
