Make a Statement this Memorial Day

 I am a big fan of statement jewelry, and so is everyone else this season as it is an extremely popular trend. With Memorial Day this weekend I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to create a red, white and blue statement piece. Oh, and by the way it won't cost you more than $2.
 What You Need
• one red, one white and one blue beaded necklace 
(my mum bought me these - the three pack is from the dollar spot at Target)
• Ribbon (you'll want enough to tie a big bow around your neck)
• scissors 
• white yarn
 Step One: Lay out your necklaces on top of each other.
 Step Two: Tie the necklaces together at one end with your yarn.

 Step Three: Cut the yarn so you can not see it.
 Step Four: Spread out each necklace like you are getting ready to braid them together.
 Step Five: Cross the necklaces over each other like you are braiding them together.
 Step Six: Once you have braided all the way down tie the yarn at the end to secure your braid in place.
 Step Seven: Run your ribbon through one end of the necklace
Step Eight: Run the ribbon through the other side of your necklace. Cut the ribbon to your desired length, put it on and head out to make a statement!
