5 Minute Cufflinks

I had to make a pair of these at Theo's Christening when Chris realized that he had forgotten his cufflinks in L.A.  This is a quick project that anyone can make with either beads, buttons and twistie-ties from the grocery store.

What You'll Need:
  • Two beads or two buttons or four buttons (make sure one of the pairs fit through the button holes so you can get them on)
  • Two twistie-ties, stripped of their paper.
Directions:
  1. Run your wire through the button holes and twist around center wire behind the button. 
  2. Do the same for the bead leaving a distance of 1/2 inch between the two buttons.  It won't be pretty where you twist the wire around itself, but it won't show when it's through the button holes.
