DIY: Floral Bib Necklace

A few weeks ago, I bought a huge pack of coloured felt and cut up some felt flowers for an activity with the children at a playgroup. There were several felt scraps and felt flower left over from the activity, so I decided to make a bib necklace!



I'm really happy with what I came up with. The colours and style are really refreshing. For some reason, I always get reminded of Carmen Miranda when I look at the necklace.

Here are some pictures of the materials I used and steps to arranging the flowers. Hopefully, they'll give you a better idea about how to make a similar one! 
Felt of different shapes and colours, Wooden beads, Black felt, Black scrap cotton fabric, some yarn, needle to sew or hot glue gun!

Add green leaves to the triangular fabric/felt base

Add blue flowers

Add red flowers

Add yellow flowers
You can either choose to sew the flowers in place or use a hot glue gun if you're a lazy arse (like me). Also, you can cut several identical triangular bases using black felt, stack them and then glue them together to make a bib necklace with a sturdy base!


That's all for now! My exams are coming in a few weeks' time and I have other assessments going on, so updates may not be as regular. But I'll definitely try my best to post at least once a week! ^_^
