These DIY Felt Flower Necklaces make such a fun spring craft! They're a unique take on felt flowers mixed with basic jewelry making and sewing skills. A great mother's day gift too!

 

To tell you the truth, I could have created templates for this but I did not. I believe that every craft should offer some freedom of expression, and should be totally adapted to the maker, and so it is more beneficial if I guide you in making the shapes yourself.

 

Supplies you’ll need for the felt flower necklaces:

Step 3: Use your flower again to guide you in drawing your leaf. Mark off Draw a leaf, and mark off the corners of your petals (the “V” where they meet).

Use the markings of the inner corners to make a circle that will be your “base”, connect that to the leaf, and cut it out. It should looks something like this:

Step 4: Put ’em all together! Insert the threaded needle from the back, through the center of your leaf, and two layers of flower.

Add the bead to the mix. Then bring it back to the back, by sticking it through the layers from the front. continue to sew a few times as you would a button.

Step 5: You’ll sew on the bail too, attaching it only to your base circle and not through all the layers. Just a few simple in and out stitches will do.
