I am so sorry for being so late at getting this posted today. My family has beenenjoying vacation and yesterday took the kids to Silverwood, a theme park in the northwest. They had a blast, let me just tell you. Look how cute they are!
Anyways today I have a fun little project I found on pinterest for you. Are you excited?
It’s very simple and I was quite excited about how it turned out. So let’s get on with it. All you need are some flat washers and grossgrain ribbon. Now you can use any ribbon really, the grrossgrain is heavy and more durable for holding the washers, but a shiny ribbon would be really pretty and maybe lay a little flatter.
Thread your ribbon through washer #1. The first washer you are threading through will be the first washer in your row, so make sure that you leave enough room for threading all of the washers and for hanging and tying around your neck. I actually made the mistake of not leaving enough ribbon and had to go back and move all the washer up the ribbon.
Thread the ribbon down through washer #2.
Thread the ribbon back down through washer #1.
Pull the ribbon tight, so that washer #1 is laying flat on top of washer #2.
Thread the ribbon back up through washer #2. At first I had a hard time seeing where I was supposed to pull the ribbon through. If you pull the ribbon back toward washer #1 you will see a nice little whole to slide the ribbon through.
Repeat Steps #2 through #5 with your remaining washers. Continue this process until you get your desired length. For my necklace I used 15 quarter inch washers. Next time I will would like to use bigger washers and make it a little longer. And there you have it. A beautiful necklace.
All you have to do is tie it around your neck and you are set.Back to Blog
