MODERN DIY GIRL’S NECKLACE


Greetings readers at hello, Wonderful! My name is Ursula, and I’m a diy and crafts blogger over at kraft&mint. I’m delighted to share with you a project I just finished. These adorable necklaces are a wonderful way to accessorize any girl’s wardrobe. When I shop for clothes for my little girl, I’m always drawn to the same styles of clothing, white or creamy tops, grey leggings and fluffy skirts.

I’m trying to add more color to her wardrobe and in the process I’d like not to break the bank. I thought new accessories would do the trick, and I’m SO excited to share this craft with you! Please take a look at the materials below and instructions to make these necklaces.

Materials:

1. Four colors of “Rainbow” Classic Felt sheets in the following colors: silver-grey, fuchsia, white and aqua.

2. {Style} by Tori Spelling choker top and necklace top.

3. Buttons a La Mode #196

4. The Collection by La Mode buttons

5. Darice Jewelry Designers 12mm lobster clasps

6. Darice Jewelry Designers 7mm jump ring in bright silver

7. Liquid Stitch glue

8. Scissors, thread and needle

9. Bird charm in silver (not shown)

10. Cabochons flowers in aqua color (not shown)

Steps:

1. Cut a circle of grey felt, size, 2.25″ in diameter

2. Cut a circle of fuchsia felt, size, 2″ in diameter

3. Sew button to fuchsia circle

4. Use stitch glue and glue fuchsia circle to grey circle

5. Put 7mm jump ring through grey circle and attach to chain necklace

6. Add more charms to your necklace

1. Cut a circle of aqua felt, size, 2,25″ in diameter

2. Cut a circle of grey felt, size, 1.5″ in diameter

3. Sew charm to grey circle

4. Use stitch glue to glue together grey circle to aqua circle

5. Sew cabochons to aqua circle. Use a very thin needle and grey thread

Now is the time to try them on! I’m very happy with the results. The contrast among the necklaces and a white t-shirt is what I was envisioning. I found all my materials at Jo-Ann Fabrics store.

Thank you hello, Wonderful, for inviting me over!
