What girl doesn’t love a little jewelry? Having four daughters, I have searched high and low for jewelry that is a reasonable price, because my daughters have a talent of losing or breaking their necklaces. I decided to do this project for Young Women’s in my ward. When I announced what we would be doing, every girl cheered! This is really so easy but I must admit some of the girls lost interest because they wanted to do socialize. If you get your girl’s alone, it really doesn’t take any time at all to create a cute necklace or headband for school, church or just to take your outfit to another level. It only took me about an hour to finish the necklace below.
1 sheet of felt
fabric of your choice
necklace chain or headband
hot glue gun
small medicine bottle
Let’s get started! Using a medicine bottle as a pattern and a marker, make circles on your felt. Depending on how many flowers you will be making, cut out 2 felt circles for each flower.
Now, using your medicine bottle and marker, make circles on your chosen fabric and then cut them out. I used 16 fabric circles for each flower. The circles don’t need to be perfect, it really doesn’t make a difference.
Turn on your glue gun and place one felt circles on your work space. Fold on of the fabric circles in half.
Now, fold it again. Put a small bead of glue in between these layers to hold the petal in place.
At the base of the petal, place a bead of glue. Starting in the middle of the felt place your pedal. Continue the process until you have covered the entire felt circle, and now you will repeat the same process with the remaining felt circles until you have all your flowers. At first, your flowers will look like they are not coming together but keep adding the pedals and you will be amazed!
Now lay out your chain or headband and find the middle. Place the first flower in the middle of the chain with the chain on top. Cover with hot glue.
Take another felt circle covered with hot glue and place it on top of the other felt circle and press tightly. Continue this process with your other flowers making sure there is equal amount of flowers on each side. You don’t want to be lop sided.
