I love all (most) things trendy and statement necklaces are no exception. What better way to rock such a huge, fun necklace than on St Paddy's Day.
If you don't have anything green to wear - and you know if you don't, you'll get pinched - then make this gorgeous, bold, statement necklace and have everyone be green with envy when they see this beauty.
Here, rhinestones are glued to felt that's then cut out twice and glued together with ribbon ties between making this a darling wearable craft.
So grab your rhinestones, felt, ribbon, E6000 glue, tacky glue, and scissors while checking out the following descriptive photos and you could be making this necklace in less than an hour.
Lay out your stones on the felt in different ways to come up with a design you like. I combined different shades of green, from light to dark, to create this pattern.
I switched the stones around and came up with this.
I removed the light green stones and rearranged the rest to create this design:
I liked this look best and glued the stones on the felt using E6000. Once the glue dried I glued on another piece of felt to the first one for additional backing strength using tacky glue. It probably would have been easier to glue the felt together first before adding the stones, but I didn't realize how flimsy the felt was at first.
After drying, I cut out the felt backing around the shape of the stones, leaving an opening between the two felt pieces on either end for the ribbon ties.
Ribbon ties were then glued between the two pieces of felt that was left open on either side.
Statement necklaces add excitement to any outfit. From a sleek form fitting black dress to a basic plain t-shirt and jeans.
What better way to add that much needed green to your wardrobe for St. Paddy's Day then with this bold statement necklace?
Take a little time to enjoy
Happy St. Patrick's Day
