Today, I thought I would share with you how to make a fun new necklace. All you need is 4 feet of ribbon, some crafting beads, and some tape.
Here is another one made with the same knotting the ribbon technique.
This one was created with two ribbons.
I have a lot of beaded necklaces. Most of them I haven't worn in years. So I thought to myself, how can I make them wearable again. Here are a few suggestions.
You can fold a necklace in half and add a striped ribbon. (The idea for this came from Pinterest.)
You can use on old shoelace and tie that to the ends of your beads.
You can use a patterned ribbon or fabric to tie to the ends of your beads. Instead of just tying it in a knot, you could tie bows at the end of the beads. Maybe something for a little girl.
My beads came with a chain at the end of them so that you can hook them around your neck. You can either take the chain off, or you can cover it with some fabric and then tie some ribbon around it.
Just a few ideas on how to create new beaded necklaces, and how to spruce up some old ones!
