i wanted to turn a beloved (but sadly torn) vintage scarf into something new and fun. using the colors in the scarf as my starting point made selecting the rest of my materials really easy!
you'll need 5 petals for each flower you make. you can draw your own pattern or trace a petal from a silk flower.
trace and cut your felt layer first.
once you have this done, glue the felt pieces to the second fabric you are using, and allow the glue to dry.
once the glue is dry, trim around the pieces, and you should end up with petals that are something like this.
wear and enjoy!
my favorite thing about this necklace is how many variations you can wear of it:
since they're only tied together, you can wear each necklace individually (or in combinations with each other)
wear the necklaces together with the ribbon in the front or back
wear the flower in any placement you like on the necklaces
or any other way you can think!
plus, now that you know how to make felt flowers, you can put them on everything--make barrettes for your kids' hair, decorate your home, use several to make a daisy chain, anything your imagination can come up with.
