Tie-on beaded collar necklace
Ello! :)
In this tutorial I'm going to show you how to make this Beaded Collar Necklace! :) At first, I wanted to sew it, but tulle made it kind of hard, so I decided to hot glue everything. What matters is that it looks great from the front, so don't worry about the glue! And in case you are against glue, you can always try to sew everything! :) Ok, on to tutorial!

    - Hot Glue Gun

    - Scissors
    - Pencil
    - Collar Template (I drew it myself on a piece of paper)

    1. Trace collar template on tulle fabric twice. I free handed the pattern on a piece of paper, you can also take another necklace as a reference.

    2. Cut out collar pieces. If you can't really see where to cut, place the fabric over something bright, like a piece of paper or against light.

    3. For the collar I used mostly pearl beads, all sorts of other beads, sequins, buttons, gems. Basically everything that looked nice and could be glued onto it.

    5. If you're doing this, for example, on the floor, don't let the glue cool on it. I did it at first and the glue soaked through tulle and stuck to the floor and was barely removable. I ripped the tulle and some glue is still on the floor. I mean, pick up the fabric after you glue each piece on, so the glue stays on the collar, not your work place.

    13. At first, I wasn't sure how to connect both collar pieces, but then I figured out that I could just cut a small piece of ribbon and glue both collar pieces to it. You can trim it smaller if it's too wide!
