How to ... make a statement necklace from fabric

Monday, August 22, 2011
Statement necklaces are all the rage these days. What is a statement necklace?  A statement necklace is a BIG bold necklace that basically speaks for itself.  It makes a “statement” and is usually worn alone without other pieces. I find that these are really expensive. So being the “queen of frugal”, i found a great way to still be a part of this trend without breaking the bank and still looking fashionable:-)

You will need :
  • Ribbon
  • Scraps Of Fabric
  • Scissors


Step 1 : Cut up scraps of fabric in oblong shapes about 2 inches.

Step 2 : Cut tiny holes into the tops of the scraps of fabric

Step 3: Attach the scraps of fabric to the ribbon ( make sure to line up the ribbon so that it is of equal length). This will make the necklace look more realistic , also it would look pretty weird if one length was short and the other was long. After you’ve attached a desired amount of fabric , tie knots just in the middle of the pieces you’ve attached at both ends. This will keep the fabric in place , and you will be able to add more pieces.

Step 4: Attach all the final pieces , style and go!

 I hope that i have inspired at least One person to go out and be creative.
