Bling baby, bling

*12/29/09* Linking up to Kimba's DIY Party. See more projects here.*

If you’ve opened a magazine this year that has even a page dedicated to fashion, you have no doubt seen the jewelry craze that is all the rage…the bib necklace.

I was watching Martha the other day and she had a guest on giving a tutorial on how to make your own bib necklace. Of course I was all over this and had to get the supplies to make one of my own. All you need is some satin ribbon, felt, acrylic jewels and fabric glue.

A cute top to wear with your bib necklace is nice too. Thankfully I had a coupon for $10 worth of free stuff from JC Penny so I found a cute purple top with a ruffle neckline. Purple is very in this season too so it works out great.

Last night I arranged all my gems and glued them on and today I’m sporting my “WWE Wrestling Belt” as my husband dubbed it. Men! They just don’t get fashion! At least he said it was for the lightweight division. :)

What do you think?
This necklace cost me less than $10 to make and they are easily retailing anywhere between $50 to over $500 depending on what magazine you’re reading.


  1. I think it looks great! that's too funny what your husband said:) My husband probably would have said the same thing...Would also probably look great with a black dress for an evening out as well or anything black in general...

  2. I have been digging these this season. I will have to try to make one. You stole my verse (haha). I have been quoting this verse for the past 7 years since I became a stay at home mom. I is so true. THANKS FOR SHARING AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

  3. That is so pretty! I have just been wanting to make/get some cool necklaces..thanks for the post.
