Step 1 Cut your ribbons into 14" lengths.
Step 2 Layer the 3/8" ribbon on top of the ½" ribbon, color/pattern or glitter sides facing out on both ribbons. If you feel more secure you can glue the strips together.
Step 3 Thread the needle, and tie in a small colorful bead at the end to prevent thread from pulling through the ribbon.
Step 4 Thread a large bead on next.
Step 5 Fold the two lengths of ribbon together back and forth evenly, approximately 1" loops, threading onto the needle as you go.
Step 6 Thread and tie in place a large bead. This will keep first run of folded ribbon in place and in the right proportion and serve as a base for the second run of ribbon.
Step 7 Add on the second section of folded ribbon. Repeat Step 5.
Step 8 Thread and tie in place a large bead. This will keep second run of folded ribbon in place and in the right proportion.
Step 9 Finish off with a loop to use as a hanger.
Make sure you take the time to make your folds/loops even.
