This is my third Project for Project Re-Style. I am going to try and do one project every Monday.
Here are the details.
One Morning, about three months ago, I reached for my pearl necklace to wear. Once I had it in my hand, I started to hook it around my neck, and one of the strands broke and pearls went everywhere on the floor in my living room. I thought nooooooooo!, my favorite necklace. Then I scrambled to find all the pearls, place them in a zip lock bag, and I lovingly set them in my room. I had no clue how I was going to fix this. Well then, Style -Remix came along and I did some research on pearl necklaces and I came up with a plan.
I found this beautiful pearl and ribbon necklace and I started to look for stuff around my house. I did not have any black ribbon so I purchased some sheer black ribbon, on sale for $1.00 and some Velvet ribbon for about $2.50. I Grabbed my waxed thread and a needle and made this.
And Here Is the Tutorial
|I cut the lower strand of Pearls off my necklace and added them to the others in the zip- lock bag .|
|I still have the original necklace, it is just a little smaller and I really kind of like it this way.|
Things you will need.
1. Sheer Ribbon of your choice about 3/4 of an inch wide or bigger if your pearls are bigger.
2. Velvet ribbon about 1/2 inch or 1 inch wide. However big you want it, to tie the necklace together in the back.
3. Wax thread.
4. Needle.5. Pearls.
|Cut your ribbon into 1 to 1 and 1/2 inch lengths.|
|Thread your needle|
Tie your thread at the bottom.
Make sure you tie a knot with a loop like this in the picture above, so you have something to tie your velvet ribbon to.
Thread on a pearl.
Then thread on your ribbon like this.
|Repeat these two steps until you get to the length you want. Then Tie off the end with the same kind of loop knot.|
|Cut two strips of Velvet Ribbon about 14 inches long.|
|Tie one end of the velvet ribbon to one of the loops. Do the same with the other velvet ribbon to the other side.|
|All Done!! You did it.|
I Hope you all have fun doing this.
3 down 49 to go.
Happy Re-Styling Everyone.
