March Necklace Madness:Day 2


I love all the ribbon and fabric that I see in necklaces these days. It is so simple to recreate the look for much less! And this was so easy! The materials all came from Oriental Trading again.  They sell this nice chain and many ribbons.  I bought a bunch of ribbons and fibers to make some of my own necklaces.  
 
Using wire cutters, I cut a piece of the chain and a piece of the ribbon.  Tied the ribbon on either end then ties a couple to the chain.  It took me about 5 minutes! I'm wearing it now and love it!

I also used Fray Checker which really helps keep the ribbon from fraying.  I have never used this before but couldn't have had such a nice finished piece without it.  The ribbon frayed almost immediately but with the Fray Checker it hasn't at all!
