* Did not use the needle & thread

steps

Ribbon Necklace DIY -1

* Cut your base {using 7/8″ Black Grosgrain Ribbon} about 60″ long {I’d rather start long and cut down than have it be too short in the end …& this way, you can wear it as a belt too}

Ribbon Necklace DIY -2

* Cut 5″-7″ strips of various colors of choice – I used 35 ribbon strips

RIbbon Necklace DIY -3

* Measuring about 24″ down from one side of your base ribbon, tie one of your shorter ribbons in a tight knot. {you may also hold this up to yourself and eyeball placement}

RIbbon Necklace DIY -4

* Alternating ribbon colors, continue knotting ribbons down the base. You can do them all in the same length or longer at one end & shorter at the other, like I did.

RIbbon Necklace DIY -9

* I made my knotted section about 10″ long …you can stop where you like it.

RIbbon Necklace DIY -6

* Using your fingers, fray the edges of each ribbon to give it some texture
* You may also choose to stitch the knotted ribbons to the base but I found it wasn’t necessary if you knot them tightly

RIbbon Necklace DIY -7

* Finish off the ends with a bead by cutting the end of your base ribbon into an almost narrow point and pulling the bead up through it as far as it will go, securing it into place.

This project was really easy, really quick, & rather inexpensive to make …yet it looks like none of those things and I can’t wait to wear it. Velvetor Metallic ribbons would be GORGEOUS as well …especially for the holiday season.

Have Fun!

    I love this look, and I’m actually making a wreath out of ribbon using this technique for Halloween.

    I created the budget version of your necklace from leftover satin fabric.
