How to Make a Bib Necklace Tutorial

Glammed out bib necklaces are pretty in right now. They are also SUPER easy to DIY! I finally got around to making my first one. Here's how it turned out!

I love it! I think it's so snazzy looking :) Want to make your own? Here's how!

-Pencil & Paper
-Assorted Beads
-Hot Glue

1. Trace out a bib shape on paper, cut it out, and then use that as a template to cut out two bib shapes with felt. 

2. Start hot gluing beads onto the felt! I decided to use lines of beads instead of figuring out a fancy pattern. 

3. Continue hot gluing lines of assorted sizes and types of beads until no more felt is showing!

4. Flip the bib over and hot glue two pieces of ribbon onto the back top corners of the bib.
5. Hot glue the second felt piece on the back of the beaded bib over the ribbon ends. 

And then you're done!

Now all I need to do is figure out what to wear it with!!

I'm entering this into One Month to Win it!
