Button Neclace

Idea to make your own costume jewelry from upcycled buttons

Make your own trendy jewellery with used buttons – all you need is some old buttons and a string of fish gut.

These particular pieces are crafted from the old Police Uniforms from the South African Police Services, but any old buttons will do.

Once you have collected enough buttons, decide on your pattern, thread the buttons onto the fish gut – and tie off – easy as 1,2,3!

There is so much we can do with all the items that we normally throw away. With this project
we reduced our carbon footprint by turning an old 5l bottle into a garden. We have tons of
these gardens hanging on our back wall, and it is possible to grow almost anything in them,
making them ideal for those with limited space.

If you live in a flat, why not turn your patio into a hanging herb garden? We're growing
chillies, tomatoes, mint and basil in ours! Follow our easy step by step instructions and see
just how easy it is to make your own recycled hanging garden!
