I found something similar on Pinterest. But I decided to change it up a little. This project was so easy and quick. It made a perfect Christmas Present for my Sister-In-Law. I loved it so much, I had to make one for me too.
Here's the supplies:
A string of beads. I used one string per necklace. Try to keep the ribbon and the beads approximately the same size.
Upolstery thread or embroidery floss.
Large needle and scissors.
40 inches long.
Cross the ribbon in the middle of the 2 strands like this. Double stitch in the end as shown.
twisted the satin ribbon each time to keep the shiny side out.
stitch back through one bead to hold it together better.
I did that 3 times.
Front, middle and end.
It will start to look like this.
stitch back and forth a few times to secure the end and knot the thread. Cut off long ends of thread.
knot in the end of the ribbons to hide the thread.
another length of satin ribbon to finish the necklace, long enough to double it. Poke the ribbon through the starting point and pull ribbon through to the middle.
Tie a knot in the added ribbon like this to secure.
double knot in the ends of the ribbons and you're done!
So lovely, easy and quick! Can't wait to wear it!
