Next, add jump rings to all the buttons and leave the rings open. Use a variety of button shapes, sizes and styles to keep it interesting.

Finally the fun part! Use the jump rings to attach the buttons to the chain and close the jump rings. For some of the smaller button shapes, you may want to use multiple jump rings to attach the button to the chain. Make sure you mix it up and alternate the colors and sizes as you add the buttons to the chain.

Do you have a signature color? Then try using buttons in different shades of that color to create a key chain that reflects your style! You can also use this Button Charm Key Chain to add some flair to a lunch bag, backpack, or hand bag. Personalize it by swapping out the bead charm for one with your initial.
