Want to showcase the
beautiful old buttons in your
collection? These button rings
are an easy way to adorn your
fingers with the stray stunner
that stole your heart.
YOU WILL NEED:
» Ring findings I use the adjustable sort with
» Embroidery thread or dental floss
a perforated disc or screen, used to make
beaded rings, found at bead supply shops.
» A selection of buttons Flat or sew-through
buttons work best, but you can also use
small shank buttons.
1. Choose your button(s).
If you want to stack your buttons, you can
sew them together before attaching them to
the finding. Sew through them once or twice
and tie a firm knot on the underside. I used
a mixture of vintage and new buttons.
2. Sew your button(s) to the finding.
Sew right up through all the button layers if
possible, lining up the holes as you go. If you
can’t sew through the buttons, just sew the
disc to the buttons by passing the needle
through the knot on the underside. Sew them
on firmly, and tie off your threads at the back
or weave them back in under the disc to hide
3. Slip on your ring.
Show off your bling! When you get bored
with the buttons, you can just snip them off
the disc, return them to your stash, and
make some new rings.
