Thing is, Di isn't much of a DIY'er. She's a smarty-pants...but not the type to get her craft on. I may have scared her when I told her I was roping her in on my weekend plan. (I received an email saying "What craft?") I scanned Pinterest and found one that I had marked that didn't require too much time or for supplies and decided this would be the one. It was perfect for a lazy Sunday.
Here's how I made my own ribbon and pearl cluster necklace
|Supplies: Ribbon, Cheapy necklace(s), Scissors, Lighter, Ruler|
|Fold long necklaces, get length|
|Tie ribbon to necklace. Knot tightly. Burn edges of ribbon|
|Find mid point of ribbon, cut, burn edges again (thanks Di for holding the ribbon so I could get the picture!)|
|Please pardon my deer in the headlights look, I just took this picture as I was working on this post.|
So I browsed the Internet to see if I could find some currently for sale necklaces similar to this, you know...for comparison. Here's what I found:
|Endless, Endless, Limited|
If you make this yourself, I'd love to see your creation!
