As part of Camp Doll Diaries preview week, Callie set up a station for the campers visiting Camp Doll Diaries for the morning to make some easy button bracelets.
You only need 3 supplies to make these fun bracelets:
- Buttons – any size (although small works better with dolls) – of course mine are from Laura Kelly’s collection
- Elastic thread or embroidery floss
Step 1 – Gather your supplies
Step 2 – Cut a piece of elastic string about 12″ long – you will end up trimming it at the end. Fold it in half and tie a loop. Thread your string through your first button as shown.
Step 3 – Continue adding buttons – you can thread through just two holes, criss cross, or get creative and make your own style. When you get to the last button – this will vary based on the size of the buttons and the size of your doll’s wrist – tie the two ends together tightly and trim the excess string.
Step 4 – Wrap the bracelet around your doll’s wrist. Pull the loop over the last button for a perfect fit and for easy removal.
How cute are those? I think this one would look great with the new American Girl Flamingo dress.
If you make this, take photos of the finished product and email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on your Instagram account and tag us (@dolldiaries)!
Have a great Friday!
