DIY Quick Gift
Styling Tip:
1. Wear this necklace with either a tee and jeans, or a fancy black dress. That's the beauty of it! You can dress it up and dress it down as you please!
2. Feel free to add more or remove layers. This necklace would be super funky with double the amount of bows, and very delicate with half the amount of bows.
3. If you would like it to be shorter, make your ribbon pieces smaller and attach a clasp!

Yours is adorable, however, after trying this, I don't think it should be labeled as being "nice and simple". Totally not as easy as it looks. Or maybe I'm just inept with ribbons and bows. That also is a possibility.
