Button Key Ring

This is a bright, colorful, chunky key ring.

Supplies Needed:

12 inches of fine cord
10 colored buttons

Fold the fine cord in half. Make a knot about one inch from the fold. Thread the buttons onto the cord by pushing each end of the cord through one of the holes in the buttons. Choose the buttons so you get a random selection of colors and textures. When you have threaded on the last button, knot the ends of the cord together tightly beneath it. Cut off the excess cord. Slip the loop of the cord into the key ring(an adult might need to help).
