My love for pretty non-metal necklaces has been documented on the blog before (remember the DIY Wood Bead Necklace?), but this time we’re going super simple, super fun. The perfect supply to fit the bill? Sweet, shiny ribbons!
(Do you dig my Ray-Bans? Man, I love them. I held out for YEARS, certain that they couldn’t possibly be as cool as everyone thought. Tom Cruise in Top Gun was SO two (three?!) decades ago! But the masses were right again- these glasses rock.)
To make this necklace with ribbon, round up:
– one spool thin neon pink ribbon (mine came with 10 total yards)
– if desired, a second spool of light pink ribbon (or ribbon in a complementary color)
– hot glue gun and glue
First, cut strips of neon pink ribbon approximately 30 inches long until you can’t cut anymore strands. My spool yielded 12 strands. If using an accent color, cut three additional strands of the same length.
Use very small dabs of hot glue at the edge of the ribbon to create large loops out of each strand.
Once all your strands are created, give them a few minutes for the glue to cool and set. Gather all the glued edges into your hand.
Use an additional length of ribbon and dabs of hot glue to wrap around the loops and secure.
See that little wrapped section up top? That’s where all your looped ends will be gathered and secured.
And… voila! A comfortable, bright necklace that will look great with tons of outfits (Ray-Bans not required).
