Simple Projects Week: Necklaces!

Just a quick idea today! A very quick idea. :O)


Long necklaces have experienced some extreme popularity over the last few years, so we probably all have at least one or two in our jewelry box! For some reason I never wear them, I guess I prefer a shorter length. So I thought of a quick way to alter them!

Simply cut two lengths of coordinating ribbon,  several inches long...


And tie one ribbon to each end of the necklace!

And there you are: a new necklace!


You can always add embellishments if it makes you happy. :o) (And that always makes me happy!)




Two small lengths of ribbon and you've got a new necklace! Isn't that fun? I like how it's doubled up, too. I hope you have fun with them!

Have another wonderful day. It's raining here and I. Am. Happy!! I need a Caramel Apple Spice.
Love,
Disney

  3. I love this idea! I have some long necklaces that I try to loop around my neck twice because they are too long, then they just end up choking me. I will have to try this!

  4. Oh, very nice... I never wear long necklaces either because I am too short to pull them off. Love this because you have the option to easily lengthen again if you wanted.

    I love your site and all the great sewing tutes!

  14. This is SUCH a great idea! Thanks, Disney! I never wear my long necklaces, and now I can wear them again!! :)

  15. I love that you didn't wreck the original necklaces in order to do this! Very cool. I collect vintage rhinestone jewelry and I'm always agast at home many home crafters will unknowingly ruin a 50+ year old brooch worth $100 making a $2 craft project.

    Your project is great because it makes necklaces more functional (and cute) without ruining the original piece. Kudos!

  23. Hi! This is my first day on Pintrest. I tried this for Halloween & the part I'm not succeeding in is making the knot look as nice as your. I also don't wear my long neclaces & attempted this before seeing this, but I have a little piece of ribbon sticking out that doesn't look as polished as yours. Do i just cut off the excess ribbon? Is yours tucked in the back?
    Thank you!

  24. Wow I think this is the third or fourth item on your blog I have pinned on Pintrest. You are so amazing and awe inspiring. I can not wait to try out some of these ideas on my own.

    Thank you for being simply so amazing.
