To begin, lay out the buttons to get a rough idea of which buttons you what where.
Cut a 1 yard piece of wire. Twist the end of the wire onto the middle of the comb.
Thread a button onto the wire and close to the comb. Begin wrapping wire around the comb to secure. Move to the next section and add another button or two.
Wrap to secure your second button and add another button close to the others.
Keep adding buttons until you get to the end of one side of the comb. wrap and cut wire. Tuck the end of the wire back into the wrapped area so the sharp point isn’t sticking out.
Cut a new piece of wire. Twist the end around the middle of the comb, close to the buttons.
Continue adding buttons and wrapping wire to the other end of the comb. Once the entire comb is decorated with buttons, cut wire and tuck loose wire under the wrapped wires.
