Ribbon and Pearl Accordion Bracelet and Neck Piece: Do It Yourself

Ribbon and Pearl Accordion Bracelet and Neck Piece: Do It Yourself

Hello ladies,

I am so glad you all liked my earlier DIY article on the Pink and Gold Statement Bangle. I thank you all for your lovely comments. Do try it out and let me know how it turns out.


Today, I am back with another DIY project.  This is a ribbon and pearl bracelet which resembles the musical instrument “accordion.”

Materials Used:

How To Make Pearl  Necklace 4

  • Satin ribbon – Size 1/2 cm.
  • Thread.
  • Needle.
  • A string of pearls.


Thread should match or should be close to the colour of the satin ribbon you select.


1. Take the ribbon and leave 15 cm from the starting point and fold the ribbon in a zig-zag folding pattern (this is also known as Accordion fold). The folds should measure approximately 0.5 cm.

While folding the ribbon in a zig-zag pattern, press the folds so that the lines where the fold is created are visible once you unfold the ribbon.  The folds should measure same throughout for a neat look.

2. Thread the needle and secure the thread in the needle with a knot (the knot should be thick such that it does not pass through the satin ribbon on pulling it from the opposite side).

3. Take two folds (of the satin ribbon) and insert the needle through the centre of the folds and then insert a pearl through the needle.

4. Now, take the next two folds and insert the needle through their centre and pull it out from the other side. This is when the pearl will be secured between the folds.

5. Now, continue till you get the desired length (measure it on your wrist) alternating between two ribbon folds and pearls. (I have used 16 pearls).

6. Once you are done inserting all the pearls, take out the needle from the last ribbon fold and stitch and secure the thread such that the ribbon does not unfold.

7. Now, tie a knot before the first and after the last fold.  Leave approximately 15 cm ribbon from the last fold and cut the loose ends of the ribbon in an inverted “V” shape as seen in the image below.

The Ribbon and Pearl Accordion Bracelet is ready.

Your bracelet is ready to be worn, now all you have to do is put it over your wrist and tie a bow knot. You can also wear it as a neck piece, but for that you will have to leave more ribbon (more than what you leave for bracelet) before the first and last fold depending on how high or low you want the neck piece to be. Measure the ribbon keeping in mind that you require more ribbon to tie a bow knot.
