First of all a big thanks to all of you for liking my DIYs, it really motivates me 🙂 coming back to today’s tutorial, today we are going to make a statement necklace. I don’t wear statement pieces regularly but I love adding fun pieces in my collection hoping to wear them some day 😛 So when my niece was here I made a fabric flower neck piece for her, outcome was good so I thought why not make one more for myself. For her I made it in in baby pink with few more flowers but for myself I wanted something understated in solid color, so I used grey. You can select any color of your choice. So are you all ready? let’s get started then.
Things we need:
• 2 to 21/2 inch wide 15 inch long fabric strip for each flower.
• Felt or any thick cloth to use as base.
• Chain of desired length (as per the length of necklace you want) or you can use ribbon too if you want.
• Some beads for decoration (optional)
• Scissors, fabric glue or hot glue, feviquic, thread & needle.
Step 1, 2 & 3: Take one strip of the fabric, keep it straight on a flat surface, fold both the raw edges inside towards the center then fold it in half.
Step 4: Make a tight knot at the end of the strip. Make sure you keep your raw edges folded in as you tie your knot. The tighter you make your knot, the better your rosette center will appear.
Step 5: Keep your raw edges folded in as you start your rosette. Hold onto the knot’s tail and bring fabric down as you turn around the center. This will help keep the center nice and tight. Go for two turns then glue it.
Step 6: now start twisting the fabric from bottom to top towards you as shown in picture and roll towards you. Keep doing this and keep gluing every 2 turns. Keep the center tighter so that your flower wont fall off, and add glue at the bottom so that it wont look ugly at the top.
Step 7: keep twisting and rolling till you reach the end of the fabric strip.
Step 8: glue the fold and paste it at the back.
Step 9: cut out the extra fabric and the fabric tail.
Step 12: When all then flowers are ready then attach them on the felt using glue.
Step 13: to make it stronger you can even sew the flowers on the felt.
Step 14: once done cutout the extra felt, according to the shape of the necklace.
Step 15: for added protection and to give a cleaner look to the back of the necklace, glue another piece felt at back. Then cut out extra.
Step 16: the flower arrangement is done. Glue some beads at the center to beautify them if you wish you can add some more beads of different color and size too.
Step 17: now attach the chain at back of the flowers using feviquick or hot glue. Glue a small piece of felt on top of it to secure it. Let it set for some time.
Step 18: that’s all; your handmade fabric rosette statement necklace is all ready for use.
Go on and flaunt it in different colors and you can try in in prints too…. It looks very nice with plain shirts or blouses. You can even use flowers of different sizes to get different patterns. I have seen this kind of necklace online ranging from $25 to $200, but you can make it on your own for almost free of cost. So let you imagination guide you and make your own fabric rosette statement necklace.
Hope you guys liked this tutorial and will try it too 🙂
