A few posts back, I mentioned I was going to a "Black and White" party for New Years Eve. As usual my outfit was mostly back - I needed some white to stay within the theme. I made this adorable necklace for the party and for my attempt at black and white. I found a great tutorial on Flamingo Toes blog, she made a beautiful Anthropologie inspired necklace. I tried to do a no sew necklace but I had to break out some needle and thread for the small beads (and I so tried to avoid this by searching my house for the perfect button or trinket to hot glue to the center of the flower - no such luck.)
Here are some of my supplies for the necklace:
Needle and Thread
First I sketched a flower pattern on the back of the fabric and then cut it out. You need three flowers for the necklace. For the larger flower, you want to cut out 4 flowers and for the 2 smaller flowers you need to cut out 2 for each flower (4 total)
Now you assemble. For each flower, place the fabric pieces on top of each other rotating them a bit as you lay them down and then you sew your beads into the center of the flower.
Then cut out a piece of felt and glue the flowers to it, be sure you cant see the fabric from the front. I then cut an old necklace in half and hot glued the two end to either end of the felt.
And my necklace was done.
I also made Sweet Girl a headband for the party using this method.
