Homemade Ribbon Necklace
Necklaces above from JCrew
I've had my eyes on a necklace like the ones above for a while. I love the way they tie with a ribbon - such a pretty detail. But all of the ones I saw in stores were $40 or more, and sadly, that's out of my budget for a necklace. So, I figured it was time to get crafty. (Yay! Craft time!)
After a stop at trusty old Joann's for orange beads and gold/silver chain (I already had the orange ribbon - it's the same that I used here), I got to work and turned it all into this:
What do you think? It really was a totally simple (and completely cute - if I do say so myself) project - and this is just the first one! I plan to get waaaaay more creative with them in the future. I really like the idea of making one out of fabric flowers like in the top photo. Might have to give that a try next...
