DIY Button Friendship Bracelet

Updated on November 26, 2013

Button Friendship Bracelet



Friendship bracelets are a big craze nowadays. Friendship bracelets are awesome as they are an inexpensive and fashionable way to show your love for your fellow sisters! Now you and the girls can get together and make you own Button Friendship Bracelets for Cheap as Chips! These bracelets would also make lovely gifts for your friends and family.

This is what you will need:

  • Twine String in your colour choice
  • Assorted Buttons
  • Scissors

Yip that is all you need for this super easy project.

Step 1:

Measure the length you think the twine should be by wrapping it around your wrist. Ensure that you allow enough string to tie a knot to join the bracelet. Rather cut your string too long as you can always trim this later.

Step 2:

Thread as many buttons as you like by threading the twine through the button holes. (If the twine frays, then try and burn the edges with a lighter - make sure there is an adult around to help you with this!)

Step 3:

With the help of a friend or family member, wrap the string around your wrist and tie a tight double knot. Cut any hanging strings afterwards.

I usually buy all my buttons from second charity chops then I get the twine online off eBay or Amazon.

There you have it! A fun, cheap and easy DIY project for you to do over the weekend or holidays!

Meaning of Friendship Bracelets

A friendship bracelet is given as a sign of friendship. It is intended to be tied on the wrist of a friend and worn continually as a symbol of lasting friendship. Friendships bracelets should be worn until they fall off by themselves. Cutting off a friendship bracelet is considered by some people as bad luck on the friendship. Keeping on the bracelet until it falls off naturally shows commitment to the friendship. When one falls off then its a great excuse to get the girls together for another fun crafting session. suggests selecting colors for a friendship bracelet that reflect the character traits of the intended recipient:

  • Pink -- kind
  • Red -- honest
  • Orange -- energetic
  • Yellow -- cheerful
  • Green -- responsible
  • Blue -- loyal
  • Black -- strong

This tutorial shows you how to make a friendship bracelet using buttons. I had a fun idea to use each button as a sentimental charm; your friendship bracelet can therefore act as a charm type bracelet. Each button can represent a different friend or family member's personality. For example; a heart shaped button may represent a boyfriend or loved one, a glitter or crazy button could represent a friend who is fun and outgoing, or a dog or cat shaped button could represent someone who loves animals.
