Step By Step Instructions:

1. Thread your beading needle onto your pre-cut ribbon.

2. Thread your beads onto your ribbon in your preferred order, centering the beads in the middle of the ribbon.

3. Tie a single knot against each end bead to keep your beads from sliding on your ribbon. (Leave some space so that your beads fall nicely on your ribbon.)

4. Tie both ends together in a double knot or a single knot followed by a bow. This knot will determine how long your necklace hangs, so adjust accordingly.

5. Trim the ends to your desired length and lightly melt the ends with a lighter to prevent it from fraying. Ribbon melts very quickly, so be sure to go slow!
