    Cut the cord to at least ten inches (25 cm.) long. Tie a knot at one end of the string to keep the beads and buttons from sliding off as you create the bracelet. Tie another knot around two inches (5 cm.) from one side of the cord.

    Step 2: Feed the Button Followed by the Bead onto the Elastic String

    Loop the button first so that it stands vertically instead of laying flat on the stretchy cord. Use the bead to help the button keep its stance. Keep adding buttons and beads alternately or according to the design you want to make.

    Step 3: Keep Threading until the Bracelet Fits Perfectly

    Wear the bracelet from time-to-time to check if it fits neatly around your wrist. Do this as you get closer towards the end of the bracelet. Leave about two inches (5 cm.) at the finishing tip of the cord.

    If you have some buttons and beads left, that is perfectly fine. You can keep and use them for your future DIY projects.

    Step 4: Tie Both Ends of the Elastic Cord

    Tie a reef knot or a double knot to secure the pattern. If you do not tie the ends properly, and it breaks, it can be hard to find all the missing pieces.

    Step 5: Trim off Any Excess Strings after Tying a Knot
