Make Carrie's Button String
Little House Crafts & Activities

When Laura and Mary found pretty beads from the Indian camp, they strung them onto a string with button's from Ma's button jar.


  • String or yarn
  • Buttons or beads


  1. To begin, tie a large knot (larger than the hole in the first bead or button) or you can tie the first bead or button to the end.
  2. String beads and buttons on, in whichever order you like.
  3. When finished, you can tie both ends together to make a necklace.
