(Disclaimer: post contains affilliate links.) Despite the bitter cold we’re experiencing, Spring IS just around the corner, and so I decided to share with you these DIY felt flower necklaces in anticipation. For those of you that love jewelry making crafts, you should know that I do have a special section on this website dedicated to that!
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:
- Felt squares in flower colors
- Glass Pearls (one for each necklace)
- A pendant bail for each neclace
- Needle and thread
- Necklace chain
- Scissors. Make sure the scissors you use cut felt nicely. I used detail scissors and they were wonderful!
How to make felt flower necklaces:
Step 1: Draw and cut out a simple flower shape on one color felt.
Step 2: Use this shape to guide you in cutting out another similar shape:
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).
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 6: String your chain through the bail.
You’re ready to wear her, and show her off!!
Be a good friend and share the goodness! Make a few to pass around, make it for Mom as a mother’s day gift, and don’t forget to pin the image below so that others can make it too.
