Ribbon Necklaces

First, I would like to say how thankful I am to the men and women who have served and who currently serve our great nation!  :)  ...and a big thank you to all of you who have family in the military!  You are rock stars!


We all have a ton of long necklaces that have seen better days.  Don't retire them just yet.  Give them a face lift by simply adding some ribbon and embellishments.  It's super simple and EXTREMELY versatile!  Take a look!

Here's the finished product:

And here's how I got there:
So what do you think?  I think the best part is that you aren't actually changing the first necklace.  You're just making it better...and you can always change it back by removing the ribbon!
