Making ribbon necklaces at home

Written by Andres Bryant. Posted in Fashion

One of the best ways of incorporating ribbon into your jewellery is to use it as a necklace. The truth is that ribbon necklaces are incredibly easy to make and the result is indeed a spectacular one. If you have loads of streamers to spare, there is no better project for you. If you do not have sashes lying around your home, you should buy wholesale ribbons immediately. While you can make jewellery in all sorts of ways, there is nothing more important than the necklace.  Start with this article on how to make fashionable necklaces with ribbon.

What you need to make a ribbon necklace

To make the most beautiful necklace that you could possibly wear, you will need to gather a few things. Unquestionably, you need ribbon and lots of it. For only one necklace, you will need a 1/8” strand of material. You cannot buy just any kind of trimmings. Choose a fabric material that will hold a knot in place. If you are planning to make 4 or 5 pieces of jewellery, you will obviously need more fabric material. It is up to you to do the math. Now, what else? Well, besides narrow strips of material, get a measuring tape, a pair of sharp scissors, crimp tubes and, last but not least, a hammer.  

Let the magic begin

What are you going to do with all these things? The answer is simple: get to work. Once you have made sure that the length of the material sits around your neck, clip both edges and feed one of them through the crimp tube. Feed the very same edge through the ring and back and trim the edge. Make sure to feed the other end through the remaining crimp tube. To make sure that the tubes hold, use the hammer. As a finishing touch, you can make multiple knots or a flower pendant.

Wear your ribbon necklace with pride

The last thing you have to do is wear your ribbon with pride. While the string may not be as expensive as most pieces of jewellery, this does not mean that it is without value. What you should keep in mind is that it is a fashion statement. Consequently, you will have to wear it with pride. The great thing is that the necklace will go with any outfit.  Whether you are going to a formal event or you just feel like standing out, the necklace made from narrow strips of material will help.
