A DIY Moment: Easy-To-Make, Chic Bib Necklaces (All Possible With Old Magazines)

Create Your Own Bib Necklace

You don’t have to carry expertise in the jeweler’s craft to create a chic bib necklace! It’s as easy as a few easy steps, needed materials, and — the most important of all — your amazing sense of style.

What You Will Need:

  • 1 Yard of Fabric (This could be in any color of choice.)
  • Hot Glue Gun (Super glue is an alternative.)
  • Old Magazines
  • A Pen or Piece of Chalk (This will be for outlining your design.)
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Creativity


Step 1


To begin with your new bib necklace, you must take your magazines and rip out pages — preferably very colorful. Next, use your scissors to cut strips of paper (about half an inch thick). Fold the strips vertically and roll them into coils. Depending on how you roll your paper, you will get smaller or larger coils.


Step 2

Now that you’ve created your coils (preferably 5-10) you can arrange them into a design on your selected fabric.


Step 3

Next, outline your coil arrangement with your chalk. Remove the coils (and keep your arrangement in memory). Cut — with your scissors the outline you just drew.

Step 4

Once you have completed cutting out your outline, replace the coils in their previous arrangement. Use your hot glue gun — or super glue to keep the coils in place. Glue some of the coils together to keep from a wobbly bib.

Step 5

Lastly, with your scissors poke a hole through your bib ‘pendant’ to put through your ribbon. (Your bib should now be able to be worn as a necklace.)

Voila! You now have a new bib necklace.
