Embellish ordinary household items with a colorful array of buttons for these fun crafts. ―Crafts by Dan Pasky
Reinvent napkin rings
- Elastic thread
- Crochet needle
1. Start by stringing approximately 35 to 40 buttons onto the thread.
2. Take your crochet hook and make a chain about 3 inches long. The buttons will be in between the hook and the spool.
3. Form a circle by connecting the two ends with a slipstitch. This is the base of your napkin ring.
4. Single stitch crochet around the circle. As you begin each stitch, slide one button up to the hook, and "capture" it as you insert the hook into the chain. Continue until you've gone around the circle twice.
5. Bind off.
