J.Crew Necklace

In my nonstop browsing of crafty blogs and endless dreams of projects, I saw this necklace tutorial and thought it seemed easy enough. Then I found the perfect beads at a garage sale (for $.25). So I bought matching ribbon and cranked out a project. The necklace to the left is the one found at J.Crew for $15. If you look up the tutorial at SamsterMommy , she was excited to make hers for $4. I was way excited to know that I made mine for $0.60! It turned out cute and is much greener than pictured (the ribbon is a lime green color, but the necklace photographed pretty bright and washed out its color). I didn't have quite enough beads, but it didn't matter. This project is very doable - it took me about 20 minutes and could have been faster. So go get some bead and get to work!!
