Have you noticed lately that I have been trying really hard to take my style up a notch? Well I am! But at the same time, I'm trying really hard to not spend a ton of money on myself (since my braces cost me quite a bit). I have some pretty cute clothes, so I thought that if I just add some kind of accessory that would help with my style. So I did just that, I made myself a cute necklace to go with a plain grey dress.
This is how I made it
I took a strip of fabric, 2.5"x14"
I folded it in half and then sewed it.
I then turned it inside out.
Then I took some a marble and put it into the middle of the fabric.
I twisted the fabric and glued it together. Then I added another marble. I continued doing that until the fabric was filled with marbles.
I wanted to put something in between the marbles. I thought about beads, but I didn't have any that were big enough, so took the ribbon, folded it in half and then glued it in between the marbles.
Then I added some ribbon for the necklace.
I added a rosette flower.
And that's it! Super easy and simple. I love that I can have it be super long or short. It just depends on what I'm wearing that day :)
