Little Girlie Necklace Tutorial

Oh Pinterest ! What have you done to me! I can’t even begin to tell you how many things I want to try and do because of the door you have opened !

I know I am not alone in this explosion of creativity sharing craziness. Come on admit it you have your ‘boards’ and list of ‘to do’s’ also.

My daughter Brianna showed me this one on her list and I thought it would be fun to do together. However the Pinterest picture just lead to a sweet Esty site not a tutorial. As great as that was I wanted to make my own. So I headed to the craft store for the supplies and was ready and waiting when Brianna arrived to try our hand at making these darling Little Girlie Necklaces.

Beads , any size I used 5/8″

eye pins1 1/2″

small rings

metal ribbon clasps

5/8′ ribbon

Instructions:

First make a chain of 5 beads linked together.

Thread eye pin through the bead , snip off some of the extra length of the pin and then make a loop on the straight end the same size as the existing loop. Do this to all 5 beads.

So cute!

Caution: I wouldn’t let children under 3 wear it as it could become a choking hazard so keep that in mind.

I will be making these for Easter gifts for my little girlies this week.

Hope you will have fun making one for the little girlie in your life too.
