Button Bib Necklace

In case you missed it over at Flamingo Toes, here’s my project from my guest post!

A button bib necklace!
This is a project I’ve had in the back of my mind for a long time. I’m so happy to have finally gotten a chance to put it together!

My main 2 supplies for this project were the shell buttons (1 pack) and some crochet thread.

Aren’t the shell buttons beautiful?
And did I mention that I got them for half off? Even better!

Gorgeous, right?
Okay, okay… I’m done with the gratuitous button pictures. For now!

I love the texture of the of the crochet thread over plain sewing thread.

First things first, I grabbed a scrap piece of white felt and did a dry run arranging my buttons how I would want them on the necklace. I stacked some of the buttons for more dimension.

After deciding where I wanted the buttons to go, I started threading the crochet thread through them, adhering the thread to the back of the buttons with Fabri-Tac.

I started resetting up my necklace as I laced the thread through the buttons.

Eventually I had them all laid out and promptly adhered them to the felt with more Fabri-Tac.

Next up was trimming the felt so it wouldn’t show on the front of my necklace.

I left two pieces of long felt in each corner so I will have something to work with when I attach the chain to the necklace.

I trimmed the excess felt so that it was skinny enough to slide a jump ring on it. Then I simply folded the felt back on itself and glued it down.
Attach the chain of your choice and…

Tada! Completed necklace!

I have to say I really love this necklace! It turned out even better than I had pictured it in my head.
The white crochet thread keeps it casual, which is what I was going for. You could easily add other colors of thread if you had a specific outfit in mind for this piece of jewelry. If you wanted to glam it up a bit, you could use similar colored thread or no thread at all.
