Ribbon Pearl Bracelet Tutorial

Here’s a another simple, fun DIY bracelet tutorial for you. This was actually my Sunday afternoon project, but it took me a couple days to compile the pictures.  But here it is for you!

I love this DIY ribbon pearl bracelet for its classic girly look and of course, how easy it do! It works well as a stand alone bracelet or even stacked with some other bracelets for an arm party. It’s a very elegant piece, and I think it would look worn at a more formal event such a wedding!

Materials Needed for this ribbon pearl bracelet:
– You will need approximately 20 inches of ribbon – about 3 times the length of your wrist.
– Pearls or beads.  I’ve used 12mm beads in the tutorial
– Stretch cord or stringing material
– A needle

Bracelet Instructions:
  1. Thread your stretch cord through your needle, ( you may need a needle with a larger loop hole depending on the size of your stretch cord.)  Then sew through a fold of ribbon.
  2. Thread the needle through bead.
  3. Then thread the needle through another fold.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 til you have all your beads strung.
  5. Tie the ends of the cord ends together into a secure knot and tie the ribbon into a pretty bow.

You can also make this pearl &  ribbon woven bracelet with many different  variations such as weaving through extra folds or uneven widths of ribbon for a more creative fun look. I’ve even seen this bracelet done with 2 colors of ribbon for a dual toned look as well. I hope you give this pearl ribbon bracelet tutorial a try!

  1. Thank you for posting… it took me 3 tries but I got it. I just had a hard time getting my loops to even. They still aren’t totally even, but good enough i guess. I’m using this as a craft for my MOPS group and I’m sure they’ll love it! Thanks again!

    I think I’m going to try this with our MOPS group too! What size of pearls and ribbon did you use?

    • Eileen YesMissy says:

      Hi Lyndsee,
      I used 12mm beads and 10 mm ribbon for the initial tutorial. For the pic below with the white beads, I used 10 mm beads. I find that 10mm – 12mm work best!

  11. Terica says:

    I love the idea! How many beads did you use?

    • Eileen YesMissy says:

      Hi Terica,

      The number of beads will vary depending on their size. With 12 mm beads I used about 16.. and when I’ve used 10mm beads I think I’ve used closer to 20. Hope that helps you out!

  14. juanita says:

    what size is the ribbon?

    • Eileen says:

      You’ll need ribbon that is the same width as the beads/pearls you’re using. So if you use 10 mm pearls, you’ll need 10 mm width ribbon.
