Cheap Fashion DIY : Satin Bow Necklace

This necklace is inspired by a necklace I saw at Torrid for $12.00,
however, there were so many things wrong with their version, I just knew I had to make my own!

The chain was too short (and gold, which I don't wear much of) and the bows all looked like they were about to fall apart! (plus it only came in black!) So here is my version that you can make on any kind of chain, any length you want, and almost any color bow you could imagine!

check out the how-to here and be sure to look below for photos and materials!



Materials Needed:
bows in any color you want from My Moments by Offray (found at walmart for $2.49 for a 2 pack...can be found in the craft section by the fabric)
chain (any length, again, found at walmart for $1.97)
a safety pin
*optional, hot glue gun

Here are some photos of me wearing the necklace here on the blog:
