DIY: Rosette Fabric Necklace

Hey Girls!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  Tomorrow I’m going to share my third “Jewelry Organization” idea, a Necklace Hanger.  So today I thought I’d show you guys how to make this fun fabric necklace.  I’ve had this idea bouncing around in my head for awhile now, and I was pretty satisfied with how it turned out.  Me and the sister both made one, and it was fun, easy, and a fun bonding activity 😀 And you don’t need to sew to make these…you just need a little hot glue!

The project is a lot of fun, and you can use any color or kind of fabric that you want.  You can alsoaccessorize it in many ways.  I chose to use decorative buttons, but you could change it up.

Supplies:

  • Scraps of fabric (choose colors that coordinate well together
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Felt (choose a color that matches or coordinates with your fabric)
  • A few decorative buttons
  • Necklace chain in desired color

Here’s how to make it!

1. Fold felt sheet in half

2. Use scissors to cut a moon shape out of folded felt.  Cut it to the size  you want your necklace to be.

3. Hot glue your chain onto one layer of felt.  If you are using a chain that already has a clasp attached, your chain will not be separated like mine.  (I used a piece of chain that I had cut down to size).

4. Lay the other piece of felt on top and press firmly to secure the two pieces of felt together.

5. To make rosettes, cut a small strip of fabric.

6. Twist fabric like below, and secure with a dot of hot glue.

7.  It should look something like this.

8.  Continue to roll up fabric, until your rosette looks like this. Secure with another dot of glue to hold.

Make a few more rosettes in various sizes.  Arrange on felt and use hot glue to glue them down.

I suggest making one large rosette, a couple of medium ones, and small tufts to fill in the gaps.

It looks best to make the larger rosette in your brightest or darkest color, and then to add two small rosettes nearby in the same color.  See below.

9.  Hot glue a fancy button into the center of your largest flower.  I also added two plainer small buttons on two other flowers.

10.  Lastly, carefully trim off any felt that is peeking out on the edges.

Try on your necklace, and find a fun reason to wear it!

I think I might make another one of these with different colors 😀
