Make It:  

  1. First we decorated our thread spools with washi tape.  We used 3 different kinds and wrapped it around the middle of the spool.  You can get a pack of washi tape from the craft
  2. Put your thread spool on your jewelry string.
  3. Next string your buttons on!  Put them through both holes or just one hole for a different look.  Use as many as you want to create the look you like.  Sew fun!
