Make Your Own Necklace with Beads and Velvet

You can make your own necklace so easily and what I love is that you can customize it and make it exactly the way you want it.

I chose to make a necklace using some wooden beads I had left over from another project and some velvet ribbon that I found this week. Velvet is all over the place right now and I love it so I’ve been looking for ways to use it.

Supplies Needed to Make Your Own Necklace

Steps to Make Your Own Necklace

Step 1: Cut a 54 inch piece of ribbon. You can see how long the finished necklace is in the photos. If you want it to be longer or shorter then adjust this measurement.

Step 2: String your beads onto the ribbon. Slide them down about 13 inches from one end. Tie a knot.

Step 3: Tie a knot at the other end of your beads.

Step 4: Line up the two ends of ribbon. Tie them in a knot.

Step 5: Then tie them into a bow. You may need to fuss with it a little to make it look nice… I know I had to work with mine a little to get it to look how I wanted it to look.

If you have any difficulty with the bow part then google some bow tying tutorials to try to get a little help. There’s a ton out there that are very helpful. If you’re a visual learner like me then the video tutorials on youtube might prove to be the most helpful.
