Mother's Day Craft: Button Bracelet

Button Bracelet

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

This sweet and simple craft features well-loved faces all in one place and makes a great gift for Mom on her special day.


  • Photographs or digital images
  • Scissors or circular craft punch
  • Colored beading elastic, available in the beading section of craft stores
  • Buttons with recessed thread holes (to prevent the thread from wrinkling your pictures; see photo)
  • Glue stick
  • 3-D fabric paint or glitter paint


Button Bracelet - Step 1

Select snapshots with faces that will fit on your buttons.

Cut a piece of elastic about 2 inches longer than you'd like the finished bracelet to be. Thread the buttons onto the elastic as shown until the bracelet is the desired size, leaving an extra inch of elastic on each end of the bracelet.

Using a coin or other round object as a template, trace circles around the faces and cut them out; you can also use a circular craft punch.

Glue the photos to the buttons and decorate the edges with 3-D paint or glitter paint if you'd like. Tie the ends of the bracelet together and snip off the extra elastic.
