Today while I was searching for something on ebay I came across some jewelry for crocs. I know, I know. Crocs, you either love them or hate them. Well, Buddy loves them, so these croc jewelry caught my eye.
The jewelry was basically little rubber charms with round rubber backings that are inserted into the croc holes as decorations. I had never seen them before and I was going to order a bunch for Buddy and for his upcoming birthday goodie bags, but then it occurred to me that I could easily make some myself.
So here's a little tutorial for "Croc Charms". Sorry for the lousy pictures, but I didn't want to wait until the weekend and better light to post these because I was so excited about it. Especially since it so quick and easy to do.
- decorative buttons with shanks on the back
- flat buttons that are slightly larger than the holes on the crocs
- needle and heavy weight thread
Step 1: Using doubled thread, securely tie a knot onto the flat button, and then string the thread through the flat button a couple more times to really secure it.
Step 2: String the same thread through the decorative button shank to secure it to the flat button. Repeat a couple of times and then tie the thread off in a knot and clip thread. It should look like this.
Step 3: And that's it! Get your crocs and jiggle the flat button through the hole on the top and voila! Charms for your crocs. A terrible photo, but you get the idea. Easy right?
