Need something quick to wear for Valentine’s today?? You can whip up a rolled flower necklace with some scraps of fabric – really, quick and simple – here’s how:
–Rip strips of fabric (or sheets, like me!) that are approximately 1 inch wide.
–Follow my previous tutorial on How to Make Rolled Fabric Flowers – I even have a quick video for those who learn best that way. Make an odd number of flowers, 3 or 5 (my own opinion – I guess you could make even numbers if you want…). Anyone can join in on the fun:
–Next take your flowers and hot glue them onto a piece of felt in a necklace shape, as shown:
–Then cut off all the excess felt (but don’t cut completely between the flowers – the felt holds them together). Flip the necklace over and hot glue ribbon on each end. Then I glued a strip of felt to give it a little more stability. Here’s the back view:
That’s it – tie around your necklace and enjoy the pop of pink it adds to your outfit:
One of my girls wanted to tie it to her head like a headband. So I one-upped her and said – let’s just make it a REAL headband. So I cut her flowers apart from the necklace shape and glued them on the headband. I wanted 3, but she wanted to use all 5 – I made it work by layering them and love the dimension that gives.
So there you go – super cute necklace and super cute headband. Just don’t wear them together – it’s super cute overload which has disastrous results, as pictured (don’t worry, this was just for you – I didn’t go out wearing the necklace and the headband together – yikes!)
Happy Valentine’s Day!!
