Supplies Needed for Making Candy Corn Bracelet:

How to Make a Candy Corn Bracelet:

Start your candy corn bracelet by separating the buttons by color and size. You will need to select buttons of a similar size to stack and create little button candy corn charms for your bracelet. Cut a 3-4″ length of wire and gently fold into a ‘U’ shape. Stack buttons with yellow on the bottom, orange in the middle, and white on top. Push the buttons together and twist one end of wire tightly around the other. Trim the excess wire and create a loop using round nose pliers.

Repeat this step a until you have enough to fill your your chain. My bracelet is 7″ and I have attached a button charm to every other link.

After filling the candy corn bracelet with button charms, gather your selection of beads. I am using 10mm yellow, orange, and white glass pearls along with larger clear and white glass beads. Using headpins, add 2-3 beads to each of the remaining empty links in the chain.

Once the bracelet is as full as you’d like, place a jump ring on each end of the chain. Attach the toggle clasps to the jump rings and your candy corn bracelet is complete!

Button Charm

I’m creating a Button Charm today using a button as a frame for some seasonal artwork.

No, this is not hard. You can do this so easily.

As you can see, I’ve just used a single large button for my piece today.

I punched out some art work from a sheet of Halloween images from Bottle Cap Inc. and adhered it to the center of a large button. I used Tacky Glue to attach a spider and web charm to the top of the button.

I love the way that the button acts as a frame for the image, the color really has a fun splash of Autumn color.

Great Buttons for your  Seasonal Button Necklace:

Additional supplies:

Besides that big button and a focus image , you will want a charm. I purchase my charms at local bead shops, they have such fun, unique stuff. In addition, you’ll need some chain, jump rings, and pliers.

 

You will also need a good craft glue, I chose Tacky Glue. Let this set up overnight, at least 24 hours, before you wear it … this will make sure your charm stays put!

To finish off the piece, I added a little bit of bling from Want2Scrap, because I just like a little sparkle in … well, just about everything.
