DIY (125) – Button bracelet

Hi everyone!!!

Today’s DIY is so easy and it’s also a great way to recycle old buttons.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 124



a piece of cloth (of the measure of your wrist) – buttons – elastic band – needle and thread

First of all decide the width and the length of your bracelet.

Collect the buttons you like most (you will need quite a few of them!).

Place them on the bracelet in the way you like most. All you have to do now is to attach them using needle and thread or hot glue.

Apply one larger button on one end of the bracelet and sew the elastic on the other side.

Your bracelet is ready! In this case the buttons are all white mother pearls, but if you can also use colored ones and in different sizes!

I hope you liked today’s idea! 🙂

DIY (125) – Braccialetto bottoni

Buongiorno a tutti!!!

Il DIY di oggi è così facile ed è anche un ottimo modo per riciclare i vecchi bottoni.


DIY N. 125



un pezzo di stoffa (della misura del polso) – bottoni – elastico – ago e filo

Prima di tutto decidete la larghezza e la lunghezza del vostro braccialetto.

Raccogliete i bottoni che più vi piacciono (ne avrete bisogno di un bel po’!).

Metteteli sul braccialetto nel modo che più vi piace. Tutto quello che dovete fare ora è di attaccarli con ago e filo o colla a caldo.

Applicate un bottone più grande su un’estremità del bracciale e cucire l’elastico sul lato opposto (questa sarà la chiusura del vostro bracciale).

Il vostro braccialetto è pronto! In questo caso i bottoni sono tutti di madreperla bianca, ma se volete potete usare anche quelli colorati e di diverse misure!

Spero che vi sia piaciuta anche l’idea creativa di oggi! : -)

Appuntamento a domani con un altro FAI DA TE!

DIY (115) – Button earrings

Hi everyone!!

In my sewing box I found lots of buttons… of different colors and sizes and I thought of creating earrings.

What do you think about the result?

You can embellish them by adding details in different materials; in this case I used beads.

Let’s start!!!

DIY N. 115



Buttons – wire – metal rings – hooks – beads – hot glue – pliers

Start by choosing the combination of buttons that you like the most.

On the base (the biggest button), insert the metal wire and create the ring.

Fix the aluminum wire with hot glue.

Add the other pieces of the earring.

Finally, insert the hooks.

Your earrings are ready!

I hope you liked today’s idea.

DIY (91) – Fabric bead bracelet

Hi everyone!

You don’t know what to do with fabric scraps that you have at home?. This fabric bead bracelet tutorial is so simple that you might want your kids to get involved in fabric choices and bead patterns.

The result will be amazing and you can make stunning and unique statement bracelets that you will want to wear time and time again.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 90



Scrap/organic fabric cut into triangular strips – memory wire [approx 44″ long] – closing clips – pliers – fabric glue – bamboo kebab skewer [sharp end removed if you do this diy with kids!]

Start to roll your fabric triangles around the bamboo skewer, starting from the wide base of the triangle.

Apply glue along the length of the fabric and continue rolling until the bead is complete.

Remove your bead carefully and allow to dry completely. [you need about 15 beads].

Bend one end of the memory wire around and secure with a ring shape using the pliers.

Thread beads onto wire.

Do the same with the other beads.

Apply the closure clip.


Use different shape strips of fabric to create different shaped beads. e.g. rectangular strips will create cylinder style beads!

To create a different finish, you could use non-fraying materials such as felt or knit fabric.

Use recycled magazines and newspapers to create a paper bead bracelet. Seal the outside of the bead with mod podge or similar!

DIY (82) – Plastic bottle recycle 5: bracelets

Hi everyone!!!

Here we are on our fifth date with plastic recycling.

In a previous post we saw how to make beautiful bracelets by rolling the fabric on a lanyard.

The procedure of today’s project is very similar, but the fabric will be twisted around the plastic bracelet cut out from the bottles.

Let’s start!

DIY N. 82




1 plastic bottle – glue – fabric scrap – little filling (optional)

First cut out the bracelets from the bottle and prepare the stripes of colored fabric.

Now glue the beginning of your strip of cloth inside the bracelet. Proceed in this way until you cover all the plastic.

Once you have covered the entire bracelet, cut the excess fabric leaving a piece to glue in the inside.

If you want a bracelet a bit more full-bodied, you can attach on the plastic, before twisting the fabric, some pieces of padding and then proceed with the coating.
