Flower Necklace


Now that my girls are older (and less likely to rip them off my neck) I have started to wear necklaces again. My jewlery collection is in sad condition at the moment so I have been slowly trying to build it back up. I scored this adorable necklace from the thrift and decided that it needed it a little something like a gorgeous flower!

I decide to try my making the flowers myself out of some old shirts that I had laying around. I found a great tutorial on MaryJanes and Galoshes on how to make the flower petals. They are fairly easy to make. Basically you use some synthetic material and a candle. You cut out some circles and carefully melt the edges by holding them over the candle. They were so simple and fun to make!
After I finished my flower petals I glued them together and added a vintage button to the center of it. I think it adds the perfect feminine touch to the necklace and I can't wait to wear it!
