Our Pandora Ribbon Bracelet has been so popular, we decided to make a choker version.
Just like before, we raided our ribbon stash and picked out a pretty pave pandora-style bead. Watch the video to see how easy this project is. We’ve included a materials list and step by step instructions too. So you can make your own if you like it!

Materials And Steps To Make A Ribbon Choker With A Pandora Bead
13-14 Ribbon scraps (at least 15” long)
Pandora style bead (a Pandora bead is a bead with a very large metal opening)
Toggle clasp, silver
2 Large bead caps, silver
2 pieces of 24-gauge wire, silver (cut to 3″ lengths)
1. Feed the ribbons through the pandora bead one at a time. We used the closed scissors to help push each ribbon through.
2. Line the ends of the ribbons up. Bend the 3″ piece of wire into a hair pin.
3. Slide the hair pin onto the ribbon ends half an inch from the end. Fold the ribbon ends over. Twist the hair pin wires together tightly.
4. Poke the ends of the hair pin through the hole in the bead cap.
5. Slide on one side of the toggle clasp. Fold the wires back around creating a loop for the toggle clasp. Wrap the ends of the wire twice around the neck of the hair pin.
6. Trim the wires with wire cutters.
7. Trim the short ends of the ribbons with the scissors.
8. Lay out the ribbon choker along side the ruler. Measure 15″ from the end of the clasp. Trim the ribbons here. Then repeat steps 2 and 3 to attach the other side of the clasp.
