tie me down

IMG_1260_beads.jpg

well remember those dyed wooden beads? i've turned them into four lovely ribbon necklaces. extremely simple and quick, these are a rewarding little project if you're patient enough to wait for the beads to dry.

just feed the ribbon through the beads in the order you want {use a toothpick if you're struggling with the ribbon, and just shove it through}. tie a knot between each bead then tie in a bow around your neck and you're done. voila!

i'll be giving one of these away to a new loving home, so comment here for a chance to win! i'll announce a winner on monday morning so good luck!

your dyeing inspired me to dye the plain old temporary canvas curtains I had in my loft a teal blue and make something else with the material... a cute, embellished tote maybe, and a pillow and other things.
