Ribbon Beaded Necklace

By Milton

Fall is around the corner and with a new season, some changes in our wardrobe are required. As I said before, sometimes spending money in a new wardrobe is not necessary. With some creativity you can transform pieces you already own or create new ones and accessories are one of the easiest. An outfit can go from boring to breathtaking just by selecting the right accessories. This time I’ll show you how to make a necklace that you will often see in magazines and stores a lot this season.  Why buy it when you can make your own unique version of it?

 

Materials:

 

How to:

  1. First fold the ribbon in half and pin it along the edge.
  2. Sew the two edges together which will create a tube.
  3. Turn it inside out. You need to be patient in this step, since turning the tube inside out may take you a few minutes. You can use a chopstick to push the ribbon thru. You can also use a safety pin or a paper clip.
  4. Now you can start putting the pearls inside the tube, make knots on the sides of it to make it stay in place.

I used about 9 pearls for this necklace, but you can do as many as you wish. Just make sure that if you do more pearls you have some extra ribbon, so you still have enough at the end to tie a knot. You can also do different variations of this necklace, by using more than one size of pearls or leaving more space in between.  Use your creativity and specially have lots of fun!
