Alas, I spend far too much money on cakes, crepes, and sprinkles to have many pesos. Therefore when I saw a pretty embellished peter pan collar necklace in a magazine I resolved to make my own. This is my version:
Sparkly huh? It was very simple to make, and due to my craft hoarder habit, completely free!
If you want to make one too, you shall need:
- Craft glue (that can be used on felt, plastics, etc.)
- Needle and thread
- Pearls, gems, or anything that you would think look pretty on your collar.
I first drew a collar shape onto a piece of paper. I measured my neck and then used a plate little bigger as the inside of the collar shape, and drew the peter pan shape around it. I cut the shape out and pinned it to the felt. I folded my felt and pattern in half, and pinned it so it would be identical on each side in one piece like so:
Cut cut cut cut....
I then arranged my gems and pearls to get an idea of how I would like them to look when it is finished.
I started gluing the beads and sewing the pearls on. On both the pointy tips of the collar I sewed a little piece of ribbon.
And that is it! You have a lovely sparkly embellished collar necklace.
ANYWAY. Hope you enjoyed my crafty post, I would love to know what you think - if there is anything you would do differently or if you are going to have a go etc. :)
Eat cake and prosper
