Intro: DIY Flower and Pearl Necklace
Pearls are elegant and beautiful, especially white/ cream pearls. Pearl and fabric flowers look great together.
Anyways, in this ible I'll show you how to make flower and pearl beaded necklace in 5 easy steps. It won't cost much or take much time.
Step 1: Materials Needed
To make this elegant pearl necklace you'll need:
- Faux pearl beads,
- Tissue fabric or satin fabric,
- Needle and thread,
- Beading thread or plastic thread.
Step 2: Making the Flowers
Making the fabric flowers is the fun part!
Cut 4-5 circles out of the tissue fabric of 4-5 different diameters as shown in the picture. You can add more circles (petals) if you want.
Now, carefully burn the sides of each circles with a lighter or candle.
After burning the circles sew all the layers together to form a flower, placing the larger ones on the bottom and smaller ones on the top.
Don't forget to attach a bead in the middle.
Step 3: Making the Necklace
First of all measure how long you want the necklace to be and then start threading the faux pearl beads into the plastic thread. Keep 2-3 inches extra plastic thread on both sides of the pearls.
Similarly thread another necklace but this one should be at least an inch longer then the previous one.
Tie tight knots with both plastic threads at both ends to attach both strands together.
Carefully burn the extra threads with the lighter. Apply a drop of glue on both knots to make sure it's secure.
Step 4: Making the Closure
Cut 2 long strips out of the tissue fabric. These pieces should be long enough to tie a bow knot.
Burn the sides of the tissue fabric strips carefully with the lighter
Step 5: Completing the Necklace
Take the burnt fabric strips. Insert the strip below the knot on the plastic thread (necklace).
Tie 2 knots with the strip on the necklace on the knotted area. Make sure that the knots are secure.
Now glue the fabric flowers on the necklace. Arrange and glue them on any one side.
There! You have a beautiful flower and faux pearl necklace! Easy to make and turns out elegant.
