etsy shop Funky Joy!
Here is what you will need:
Beads (big and chunky seem to work out better- I think)
Thread (I used quilting thread and I doubled it up)
A hand sewing needle
1.) Cut a ribbon length of 36 inches or more (depends on how long you want your necklace... I would say that 36 inches is the smallest you would want to go- mine is 36 inches) Tie a knot about 12 inches down from one end of the ribbon.
2.) Thread your need and tie a knot at the end of the thread. I double threaded mine to give it more strength.
3.) Put your needle through the knot and pull it all the way through so that the knot on the thread is hidden in the knot on the ribbon.
4.) Thread a bead on and than pull the ribbon over and sew through the ribbon.
5.) Add some more beads and sew through the ribbon again. A tip: leave a little slack in the ribbon it will weave through your beads a lot better.
6.) Continue adding beads and weaving your ribbon through. The ribbon will "weave" better if you pull the beads tight... this is why you need strong thread.
7.) Once you get to where you have about 12 inches left at the end of your ribbon tie a knot and sew your thread through it. Tie off the thread. Frey check or use a lighter/match to burn the edges.
And TA-DA a very chic and stylish necklace all for you!
