Hi! I'm Robin with We are doing a video for Expert Village today. We're crocheting a wire bracelet with Christmas decorations. This is what we've gotten so far. We've just added the button loop, the loop here, and the button here, which is a snowflake. Now, we're going to decide where the middle is and put the center decoration. You don't need a center decoration. You can just have an all over pattern on your bracelet. If you choose to have a center a decoration, this is how we're going to do it. We're going to decide basically where the center is. To do that, you just fold over the bracelet so that you can see right where the center would be. We're going to take some wire and cut it off with our wire cutters. We're going to decide what we want in our center. We could use a bow. We could use a Santa Claus or a snowman. Today we're going to use the snowman. Put it right in the center. This is a button, so it has a button loop on the back. Make sure the button loop goes clear through the bracelet. When we put the button on the end for the button closure, we make sure that the button loop stayed on top of the bracelet. This one's going to go through to the back side. You're just going to sew it on a like a regular button making sure that you go through the other wires and the other loops on the back to make it secure. It only needs about 3 or 4 stitches on the back, but you want to make sure that it's secure so that isn't going to turn while you're wearing it if it gets caught like taking off your jacket or something. Sometimes it'll turn.
