Welcome! My name is Heather Joy. My passion for being creative began earlier than I can remember. I love all things involved with home decor, vintage, fabric, and paper. Through blogging, I hope to inspire you to craft.
Once I saw this idea of adding ribbons unto necklaces in the February issue of Martha Stewart Living, I couldn't believe I hadn't done this myself, yet! I've added hair bands to my necklaces to lengthen them, but not ribbons. :)
Lately, I've been feeling like some of my favorite necklaces are a little too short. Ribbons are the perfect solution to lengthening them.
Now these necklaces have new life!
This necklace is one of my favorites. My Grandmother gave me this locket long ago and I've always cherished it. The photo of the little girl is my Great-Grandmother, while the other woman is Lucy's mother, my Great-Great-Grandmother. I love that many people think this locket is a new piece, while instead it's a treasured family heirloom dated back over a century.
I bought this chain for it, but have often wanted to double it up, so I attached a brown satin ribbon to allow room to double the chain.
Cost: $0 - ribbon was all on hand. The satin ribbons came from Paper Source, while the silver ribbon was from a present.
Difficulty: 1 -super easy!
Time: 10 minutes: Mostly spent deciding which ribbon to use
