Instructions



Step 1: Arrange the buttons in the order you want them on your garland. For the garland pictured here larger buttons were used at the ends, graduating to smaller buttons near the center.

Step 2: Use one wire to string 1 button to the center of the wire. If using a button with two holes, pass the wire through one hole and back through the other hole. If using a button with four holes, use diagonal holes. Use the other wire to string the same button to the center, stringing the button holes from the opposite direction. If using a button with a shank, use both wires to string the button.

Step 3: Use both wires to string 1 seed bead.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the length of the garland, until about 4" of wire remains. Use the tail ends of one end of the garland to string 1 crimp tube and 1 shank button. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Use the remaining tail ends to string 1 crimp tube. Pass both wires back through the tube, forming a loop large enough to fit around the button at the other end of the garland.
