Anthropologie Lace Flower Necklace DIY

REPOSTED from a Guest Spot I had on Tatertots & Jello
{one of my favorite bloggy peeps of all times, just so you know}
I think I’ll spare you all the mushy details about the admiration, respect and general happy feelings I have towards Jen and the fabulous Tatertots & Jello  blog.  She is basically pure awesome {but you all know that}, so I’ll skip to the real reason I am was asked to guest post today…
To teach you how to make this super duper, crazy easy, Anthropologie inspired, lace and pearl bib necklace.
And this is me, Little Miss Momma {aka Ashley}, wearing said necklace and taking photos of myself through the bathroom mirror {I kinda do that a lot}.
I have a little blog where I like to write about my life lessons as a Momma-in-training {with some occasional crafting during nap time}.
And now, lets make a necklace together:
Here’s what you need:
Beige felt {about a square foot}
Pretty Trimming/Lace
Necklace chain {mine is 24 inches, but 18 works well too}
Pearls or other embellishments
Glue gun

First, cut out three felt circles in the size you want your lace flowers.
Cut one circle larger than the others–this will be the middle flower.

Apply a circle of hot glue around the border of one of the felt circles.

Apply the edge of the lace to the the glue.

Continue this process until you have glued down the lace spiraled all the way to the center. Cut the extra lace and glue down the end.

Glue down your pearl embellishments into the center of your flowers.
Now, lay out the flowers on top of the felt in the shape of your necklace.
Glue down the middle flower first.

Next, we get the chain ready.
Here is the chain I ended up using {not the same as the one in the supplies picture}.

Cut the necklace in half.

Apply hot glue to the back of the flower and lay about 3/4 inch of the chain in the glue.

Repeat the same step with the other chain piece.

Now turn over the flowers and glue them into place on either side of the center flower. Lastly, trim the remaining felt from around the flowers.
And that’s it!


Here is another necklace I made using a similar tutorial {click here}.
Happy Crafting!
xoxo,
-ashley

    I used your grey necklace tutorial to make a necklace for my cousin for Christmas. She LOVES it. Actually, I loved it so much that I wanted to keep it. I'm going to have to try this cute lace one now.

    hi Kissy,
    This particular necklace I took from an old charm necklace that I never wear anymore. BUT usually I buy my chain from the jewelry section at Michaels or JoAnn's–they have tons of options 🙂
    hope this helps!

    Hi Ashley!

    When I saw this I just had to make it! I went ahead and did so this evening and I'm having problems with the way it lays. The buds don't face the same, the middle one does fine but the outer ones face up and when I move it all falls forward and you can see the backside. Any tips on how to fix? Thanks so much! 😉

    I just made it and had the same problem as miss v, I think I didn't use enough hot glue. I ended up flipping it over and hot gluing any part of the flowers to each other and to the felt that lifted up. I even cut another piece of felt (slim rectangle) and glued it to the back to add more security. It was way easy to make and can't wait to try others. Thanks so much!!!
