My sisters are always nagging me about borrowing their stuff—most of the time without asking. Sometimes they never even realize I’ve taking their wonderful accessories and turned them into something different to fit my style. Take this cute gold and cream braided necklace (it’s probably not real gold). I love the look, and I love the color combinations; but I can’t get over how it looks like a choker when I wear it—and I’ve never been a fan of chokers. They look weird on me. So, I decided to extend it a bit using some of things I had laying around my craft table:
Check out how I did it! Here is the starting point:
Now, simply open up the rings (You can find these at your local craft store)
Then simply attached the rings to the ends of the necklace, like so:
Slip your ribbon through the rings and tie knots (at the length you prefer):
Then simply tie the ends of the ribbon together creating a neat looking bow:
Then you’re done! Check out this new and improved necklace!
After I fixed up this necklace I went back to my sisters’ room to shop for some more borrowed goods, and came back with some matching pieces! Hahahaha—she’ll never know—because she never reads my blog. Also, the great thing about using removable rings is you can take them off when you’re done with the necklace and put it back in your sisters’ jewelry box without her even knowing! ;)
