Repurpose Pretty Baubles for Mom!

Every mom deserves something pretty for Mother’s Day!  Looks lovely on Lil

But how to provide pretty on a thrifter’s budget?  Try our fun and easy bead and ribbon necklace!  A great idea for kids because no sewing or special skills are needed.  Just a little knot tying and love!

Here’s how:

Gather your supplies:
• A string of beads or an old necklace tied in a circle with either a knot or a clasp.  Perhaps you have a necklace that has been in the family but is too short to wear comfortably.

• a brooch, clip-on earring or decorative pin – again, something you might have in the family or find at a thrift store

tie the lace or ribbon to each end


1) Lay your strand of beads on a table in a “smile” shape.

2) Tie one length of lace or ribbon to each end of the necklace.

3) Clip the brooch or pin around both strands of beads about 1/3 of the way down from one end for an asymmetrical
look or in the center of the bead strand for a more symmetrical look.
