Another post about my favorite online craft store wholeport.com
When I saw this I just thought it was so pretty, I had to have it and even though I don't sew clothes (or not very well!) I began to
Elizabeth thought it would make a good beard, like that guy from Futurama, anyone know who she meant?
Anyways, after some consideration it began to scream necklace and so that's what I did.
- Lace Collar available here from Wholeport
- Artificial Flower
- Jump Rings
- Those ribbon end clamp thingys (pure tech speak here)
- Hot glue and the gun
- Cabochon (optional)
First up I played around with the beads and flowers trying to find a pattern I liked, like so
and then hot glued the felt to the back of the collar.
Then I decided that the rhinestone was a little gaudy for my liking, so I pulled it off and added a cabochon (which I did buy from wholeport but it was over a year a go so I'm not sure if they still have them) I looked but couldn't see them.
Hot glued the beads into the middle of the rosettes.
Then I grabbed some extra felt and clamped the connector things on and hot glued them to the back
Added a jump ring to both sides and connected the chain and she was done!
I love the necklace and if your haven't checked out Wholeport do it, I promise you will not find better prices here in Australia and they are the cheapest I've found online. They even have a limited amount of freebies you can sign up for every Sunday. FUN!
