you could but the buttons in spans
give the span a padding
and then give them a left border or right border

or you could use css glyphs

| for |

check this out for example

or you could just use the | character between the buttons there's a bunch of ways to skin this cat.

<div>
  <button>my button</button>
  <span>|</span>
  <button>my button</button>
  <span>|</span>
  <button>my button</button>
  <span>|</span>
  <button>my button</button>
  <span>|</span>
  <button>my button</button>

</div>

There are two ways of doing this.
1. Using borders
2. Using :after and content: "|"
CSS
.piped span {
  border-left: 1px solid #ccc;
  padding: 0 10px;
}
.piped span:first-child {
  border-left: none;
  padding-left: 0;
}
.text-piped span:after {
  content: "|";
  margin: 0 10px;
}
.text-piped span:last-child:after {
  content: '';
  margin: 0 10px;
}

Open in new window

HTML
  <div class="piped">
    <span>One</span> <span>Two</span> <span>Three</span>
  </div>
  <div class="text-piped">
    <span>One</span> <span>Two</span> <span>Three</span>
  </div>
