How pretty? It took me forever to make this tutorial, because I had this vision in my head, but I couldn't figure out how to make it! But I finally figured it out.
10-12 large pearls (depending on amount of hair)
1/4 inch ribbon, any color
Cut about 2 1/2 feet of ribbon, and tie a knot about 6 in from the tip. Double-Knot the end of a 12" elastic. Make a gathering stitch in the ribbon, starting at the knot. Only one, though. A gathering stitch is where you go under the ribbon, and then come back up with the needle.
i don't know if you can see that the needle is through the ribbon
Poke the needle through a bead, and pull all the way to the ribbon.
sorry for the bad photos, my camera is not the best...........
Make another gathering stitch right next to the bead. Thread another bead on.
By the time you are done, It will finally look like this:
After the last gathering stitch, stick the needle through both layers of ribbon, and knot the elastic tight. Knot it a couple of times to seal the deal. Then, knot the ribbon as close to the beads as you can get. The other side is already knotted, but thread the needle with the elastic at the other end, and repeat the process there.
