Polka Dot Button Bracelet by Candace Jedrowicz

Polka Dot Button Bracelet Hero

What could be more fun than wearing a fluffy, button-dotted bracelet? Making one for yourself! Candace Jedrowicz crafts up a fun and easy bracelet to make and share. Featured on Cool2Craft TV.

Watch Candace’s super cute Polka Dot Button Bracelet YouTube video tutorial!

Materials:

Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Glue
Aleene’s Tacky Dot Singles
Cardboard roll – I used a masking tape roll
Scissors
Buttons
Fabric strips – I used sherpa fleece because it’s stretchy

Cut your cardboard roll so that it can expand to go over your wrist. It may seem way to big for your wrist, but wrapping it with fabric will make it tighter.
Run a bead of Aleene’s Fabric Fusion Glue to tack down the end of your first fabric strip.
Begin wrapping the fabric around the tube tightly, add more glue as you go.
Continue to wrap until you like the way it looks.  Be sure to try it on your wrist occasionally.  I went three times around. Secure the end with more glue. Place a Tacky Dot Single where ever you want to put a button.
Place the large buttons first.
Fill in with the smaller buttons.
