Wear it as a belt - or a collar - flowers are in bloom with this pretty accessory.
I fell in love with an image from a J. Crew catalog (shot in Prague, for early Fall 2009) where the model was wearing a flowered thing around her neck.

But the piece never became available for sale! So I made my own. Sorry for no step-by step photos - I figured it was pretty self-explanatory.

  • Step 1

    Create the backing for your piece. I used an 18" x 6" piece of peach satin voile - and turned the edges under, hemming so as to conceal the raw edges. (You need FABRIC too - just CutandKeep is bugging out on me & I can't add it to the Materials List to the left. Sorry!)

  • Step 2

    Cut your satin ribbon in half; stitch the end of each to each side of your fabric backing. Apply Fray-Stop or burn ribbon ends to keep from fraying.

    Step 3

    Add design elements with a hot glue gun onto your fabric backing. I added the flowers first, then squashed the pompon and small fabric rose (premade) in-between.

  • Step 4

    Create large fabric rose by rolling a piece of cream-colored scrap fabric, securing with hand-stitching. Glue onto backing.

    Step 5

    Tie pearl-edged ribbon in a bow, and glue onto collar.

    You're done! You can wear it as a collar/necklace, as shown - or even wear it as a belt - which I love!

    Happy DIY'ing!
