Button necklace tutorial

Hi ! hope you all are having a great day.   I can say I am much, MUCH better.
I had a minor setback a few weeks ago and it took some time to get myself in working order again.
But like my sister told me, "hold on, the sun will shine again" and she was right, it's been shining brightly the last few days.  Thank the good Lord.

Now on to the most recent project....
This is VERY simple to make, I think it only took me like 20 minutes tops.  terrible pictures and all :)

All you need is 6 or so large buttons in various sizes, largest at least an inch in diameter ( I save the extra buttons they give you on clothes.  And as you can see, last year I was way into the cropped jackets with the huge buttons.)  The flowers were from a bracelet that I never wore, it was one of those cute bracelets that is always upside down.... so annoying!!  So I broke the flowers off and used them for this necklace,  and I used a piece of a neckline from  a t-shirt because It had the perfect curve to it, but I'm sure felt would work also.

these are the steps
and this is the finished product....

I've worn it a few times and always get a lot of compliments.
I think it would be even cuter with bright colored buttons for summer, but this is what I had on hand.
