Craft #1: Ribbon and Pearl Neclace

So it’s a well known fact I have incredible Sister in Laws! Arguably the best known to man! I’d pretty much spend as much time as I could with them if I could. But now that we are spread across the Western United States it a relished treat for us to be together!

Thankfully we had one last Brother in law tie the knot and that meant one thing…

“Sister In Law Fest 2009!”

The weekend before Christmas we all meet out in Sacramento! We haven’t been together like that for well over a year! I was in Heaven! Sadly one SIL could not be there but the other 4 of us caught up, made some new memories and worked on projects together!

Meet Megan #1! No really! That’s what we have to call her! She’s Megan #1 because as of that weekend we had a Megan #2 joining the Sisterhood! Fun huh!

This here pretty little lady is everything you’d want in a SIL and in a friend! She is an incredible mother and amazing home maker! You should see her Cake Making skills! I just adore Megan
#1! And man can she rock out at a Celine Dion Concert! She is a mother to two beautiful kids and her hubby is almost done with Dental School! If it were up to me Megan #1 and her family would move close to me once Dr. D is done with school! One can hope right!

We each brought a project for us to do over the 4 day trip and this Ribbon Pearl Necklace project is brought to us by the Wonderful Megan #1!

Here’s what you need:

  • Pearls
  • Satin or Grosgrain Ribbon 3/8th”
  • Needle
  • Crafting Floss
  • a little practice
  • Measure the Ribbon to the length you want your necklace and be sure to account for the extra length you’ll need to tie a bow at the ends.
  • Find the center of your ribbon and tie a know a few inches away from the center. We are creating the area of the necklace that will hold the pearls. You can decide how large or how small this area will be.
  • Now you need a long piece of Crafters Floss. Thread tends to be too weak so use Floss. I used three out of the 6 strands that come in the woven floss. Tie a knot at the end of your floss and stick it through the ribbon close to the knot.
  • Now add a Pearl to your thread and then thread it through the ribbon again. Look closely at the picture to notice the pattern of pearl and ribbon.You are basically weaving a ribbon through a strand of pearls!
  • Once you have your section of Pearls as long as you’d like Tie off your Floss with a few stitches and knots.
  • Tie one last knot on next to the last pearl.
  • Burn the edges of the ribbon with a lighter to keep it from fraying and you’re set!



Isn’t she a beaut!

Here is a shorter version for a delicate Bracelet!



And here’s another version Megan and Stephanie made! Cool huh!!!

Thanks again Megan for an awesome Project! Miss you already!

More “Sister In Law Feast 2009″ fun to come!
