I’m going to show you how to make a Spring statement necklace. It’s called a statement necklace because it is a necklace that makes a statement! I noticed this style of necklace was really popular around the holidays, but this is a fun spring-time version. You can change the look (dress up or dress down) depending on what kinds of beads and ribbon you choose.

    Step 1

    Make sure that your needle is small enough to fit through the hole in your beads. Thread your needle with an arms-length of embroidery floss. Knot the end of the floss (I used a double knot to make it extra secure) then cut the tail off, close to the knot.

    Cut a piece of ribbon, approximately 42″ long. Measure approximately 18″ from the end of the ribbon and start here. Make 3 little folds of ribbon, accordion style, to create 3 little ruffles.

    Make sure both ends of ribbon match up and trim as needed. I cut the ends of mine at an angle for a cleaner look. Use a dot of clear fabric glue to secure both knots. Coat the tips of ribbon with clear fabric glue to avoid fraying.
