Zig-Zag Loop Rope Necklace DIY

Rope Necklace-Leopard Background


Rope Necklace-Materials

This DIY is from the M&J Trim DIY Challenge last week which is why it’s pink …but a nautical color scheme would be my first choice for this project.

* 3/16″ Twisted Cord {Rope} -3yards
* Ribbon of choice {I used 3″ cream sparkle satin ribbon -about 22 inches on each side}


Rope Necklace-1

* Beginning at the end of the rope, with a threaded needle, create a loop & stitch in place ….leave the needle/thread hanging, no need to knot & snip

Rope Necklace-2

* Create a zig-zag design with rope in varying sizes & loops & pin together.

Rope Necklace-3

* With the threaded needle, stitch design in place.

Rope Necklace-4

* Once you have at least 3inches of rope stitched together, begin at the opposite end following steps 1-3

Rope Necklace-5

* Finish your zig-zag design by meeting the two in the middle …and stitch together.

Rope Necklace-6

Rope Necklace-7

* Fold ribbon and push through end-loop you’ve created

Rope Necklace-8

* Carefully stitch in place avoiding too many stitches on the front side.

Rope Necklace-9

Tie into a knot or bow around neck -wear it long or short {and if you make the ribbons longer, you can also wear it as a waist belt over a top or dress}
