Make Your Own Designer Looking Necklace With Just Buttons And Felt!

Chunky statement necklaces are everywhere these days, but the price tag is just too much. Here is an easy and fun way to make one yourself, and chances are you already have everything to make it!

Here’s everything you’ll need:

  • a hot glue gun with glue
  • a needle and thread
  • a sheet or roll of felt
  • a chain
  • a handful of buttons or brooches (pictured are vintage buttons)
  • scissors or a craft utility knife

Arrange the buttons on the felt keeping a slight curve in the grouping so that the necklace will hang nicely around your neck. Once you have the buttons all laid out hot glue them down to the felt one by one.

Then flip your necklace back over and admire your handiwork.
