I’ve admired many crafts and beautiful creations since I started blogging and always watched from afar thinking, I could never do that. This year I made a promise to myself to make at least 3 crafts and I surprised myself by making two in one weekend. Wow!
I saw this last week on Little Miss Momma’s blog and decided I was going to make it. Her instructions were so simple even for a newbie like me. This necklace completely reminds me of something I’d pay mucho dinero for at Anthropologie and I made it for about $10!
What you’ll need:
Cotton fabric remnant
1 Square Foot Felt
Glue gunFabric scissors
Cut out 5 – 1 inch felt circles
Cut out bunches of fabric circles the same size as the felt circle. I used one of the 5 felt circles as a template and folded the fabric so that by cutting one circle, it would make 8 circles at time. This was a huge time savings.
Once you have your fabric circles, you’re ready to make the pom poms. Take one fabric circle at a time and scrunch it. The technique I used was grabbing it in the middle and making a cone shape so that each circle had a point. I used the hot glue gun to put a dot of glue on each point of the circle and then affixed it to the felt circle by pushing down and starting in the middle. Keep doing this until you like the overall shape and fluffiness of the circle and continue until you have all 5 felt circles completed.
Place pom poms on top of the remaining felt in the shape that you want your necklace in.
Glue down each pom pom with the exception of the top two and then glue the ends of the chain down to the remaining pom poms and then glue those down to the felt along with the others.
All pom poms will be attached to the felt at this point. Finally, trim the felt around the pom poms until you’re left with your beautiful necklace!
Let me know if you try this!
