    1. Buy high-quality cotton thread. Visit a craft store near you and get a string. The shop will likely offer you a variety of threads to choose from, from its thickness to its color. Choose a premium cotton fiber, as it will serve as the bracelet’s base.

    2. Choose porcelain beads or metal to decorate your armlet. Buy dozens of beads for your trinket. This amount is more than enough for your string.

    3. Get a few buttons. You will need at least two buttons because you will have to thread one tip of the wristband and hook it through the hole to tighten the bracelet. Make sure the buttons match the color of your beads and string.

    Part 2: Trim and Braid the Thread

    1. Cut the string into two four-inch pieces. Make sure the threads are of the same length because you will be tying them together.

    2. Hold one end of the string and fold it in half. Create enough space towards the end of the thread when folding the tip because you will be creating a loop.

      1. Weave the remaining parts and tie a knot at the tip of the armlet. Be sure to leave some strings so that you can still add the button to the tip of the accessory.

      2. Loop the thread through the button hole and make a knot. Use a needle to thread the string into the button slot to secure it in place.
