How to Make {CHEAP} Party Favor Necklaces

Our theme this year is Tinkerbelle! So I first searched Etsy and Ebay for cute cheap necklaces. Last year I found SUPER cute bottle cap Ariel necklaces for a great price! To bad this year I had no such luck so I was forced got to make them myself.

First I found these on Etsy for $0.80 each!

PLUS since I was ordering 14 of them the seller gave me a discount on shipping…this is one of the GREAT things about Etsy! If you are buying in bulk a lot of sellers will give you some kind of discount. I figure that it doesn’t hurt to ask! The worst they could say is no right?!

Next I had to decide what to make the necklaces out of. Luckily while walking around hobby lobby looking for ribbon for Cora I found THIS:

How perfect!

So I bought 3 rolls for less than $3 each.

I happen to have the circle link things (so professional I know) so I did not have to buy them but I can’t imagine they would be more than $2…maybe?

All I did was add the circle link thing to the charm

Fold the ribbon to fit through the circle


Total Cost: $1.60 each

I made the ribbon long enough to tie and I think it turned our pretty cute. I may also secure the edges somehow…if you have worked with ribbon before and have a suggestion I would GREATLY appreciate it!

Be sure to check back tomorrow for No Sew TuTu’s!
and order some Tastefully Simple to support St. Judes!

What is something YOU have made for a birthday party?
