What You Will Need:Materials Needed

20in ribbon

15-20 12mm pearls

Stretch cord

Needle

When choosing your materials, remember you can customize them to your liking. If you’re not a pearl girl, find beads that you love. Like a splash of color? Pick out a fun and flirty ribbon instead of a solid-colored one.

OnceThread Needle you have picked out your materials, start by threading your stretch cord through the needle. Depending on the size of your stretch cord, make sure you pick a needle with a large loophole.

After your needle is threaded, sew through a fold of ribbon. Next, sew through a bead and another fold of ribbon.

Threading Steps

Repeat this cadence until you have all of your beads strung or until you have reached a point that will fit your arm.

Midway Point

Lastly, tie the ends of the cord ends together into a very secure knot. Finish it off by tying the ribbon into a pretty bow.
