Macramé Button Bracelet

Materials

  • JHB International Critter Corner Collection Buttons: Croc, Frog, Hippo, Lion, Monkey, Zebra
  • Jute or hemp twine, 2mm, 4 yds.

Basic Supplies

scissors, tape measure

Directions

STEP 1

  • Measure around wrist to determine bracelet length. Cut one piece of twine four feet long and one piece of twine eight feet long. (Note: Designer used yellow and orange twine.)

STEP 2

  • Find midpoint of each piece of twine; fold in half at this point. Hold both pieces together and tie overhand knot just large enough for button to pass through (for clasp).

STEP 3

  • Hold two shorter lengths of twine together. (Note: These are filler cords. You will knot larger lengths of twine around them. The larger lengths of twine are knotting cords.) Thread both filler cords through holes in two-hole button.

STEP 4

  • Work bracelet making square knot with knotting cords around filler cords. See Worksheet. (Note: With six buttons, you will need approximately 1” of knots between each button.) Knot 1”, thread button, and repeat until last of six buttons is threaded. Knot additional 1/2” length and finish with overhand knot. Trim excess cords.

STEP 5

  • Close bracelet by attaching loop over last button.

Tip

  • 1. Experiment by using two different colors of twine for better ease when following the Worksheet. The bright colors add to a more fun design, too!
