DIY: Jcrew ribbon necklaces

I was drooling over these necklaces in the last Jcrew catalogs I received in the mail. But $98 a piece just seemed outrageous. With something so easy to recreate, I got right to it. I wanted to keep the project SUPER thrifty, so I started by sorting through the discount ribbon bin at Michael's Crafts store. I found some fun (and cheap) necklaces at Claire's, got my handy jewelry pliers out and went to work threading on ribbons. I found the fabulous purple ribbon on super sale (a Martha Stewart find). These have been great necklaces to throw on in the afternoon when I want to dress up my plain-jane outfit I've been wearing all morning. Plus the ribbon adds some color to my neutral clothing.


  1. I'm totally going to do this one. Like today. I am in desperate need of new (and cheap) jewelry. You have the best ideas!

  2. Awesome! Let me know how they turn out!
