How to Make Scarf Rings from Buttons and Keyrings

                                                                                                                                                                 Shank Buttons
                                                                  It's hardly a tutorial because all you have to do with them is to add them to a keyring! I use a split ring plier -

                                                                  I highly recommend this tool as you can use it for regular keychains or to even keep your pant zippers up! A real nail saver.

2-Hole Buttons

 The tutorial here shows how to make your own proper wire shank for these buttons. 

                                                                                             First cut about 4 inches of 20 G wire and fold them with 2 different lengths. Poke the wire through the two holes.



                                              Pull the wire snugly so the bend is sitting as close to the top button as much as possible. On the back end of the bottom button,

                                               flatten the wire ends going the opposite direction from each other. Use the smaller cylinder of the medium size bail forming pliers

                                               to roll up 2 loops of wire from the shorter wire end. Trim off any excess if you coil more than 2 loops. Keep the coil tight and bring

                                              it to the center of the button when "rolling". You can use your round nose pliers but remember the coil will not be even. One of the

                                              loops is going to be smaller than the other because these pliers are tapered.


                                              Now use the longer wire length to wrap once around the double loop. Cut off the excess with your flush cutters. Tuck in the cut wire end.

                                              With the completed wire shank, adding the split ring is the final step!

Have a look at our range of scarf end caps, perfect for finishing off any scarf ends. These not only add a personal touch but can help to anchor lightweight scarves that like to fly off into the breeze. The scarf end caps let you put that personal twist on a vital fashion accessory.

Repeat this step for the other end of the scarf. Let the glue dry as per the manufacturer's instructions before attaching the beaded strands to the scarf end caps.

If you intend to add on a scarf pendant or a scarf bail, ensure that you thread it onto the scarf before gluing both ends onto the scarf.

All of the caps charms and ends on the decorative scarf ends are made from acrylic or plated plastic with links (jump rings) made from brass based plated metal. This includes all caps, all charms and all of the attached beads and focal pieces.
