Rosette Necklace

It seems recently that most of my posts have been sewing projects.  I don't know what it is, but I have been sewing A LOT recently.  But, today's project is completely NO sew!!

Here's what you need:
scrap fabric
felt
glue gun


For this necklace, I ripped strips of material that were 24 inches long and 3 inches wide.  You will need 5 strips of material.




Start by folding a strip in half and tying a loose knot at one end.


Then just start twisting and wrapping the material around.  At the end you just glue the two flaps to the back of the rosette.





Continue making your rosette's until you have 5 of them.



Next lay them on a piece of felt and carefully trace around them with a vanishing fabric marker.




Cut out the felt shape.


Next, just hot glue the first 3 rosettes to the felt.




On the ends, hot glue two strips of material.  I just ripped some pieces that were about 1 inch wide by 24 inches long.


Then glue the last two rosettes on.


If any of the rosettes are not staying together nicely, just stick your glue gun in the material and put a little glue to hold them together.


That's it!  I get TONS of compliments on this necklace when I wear and it was so easy to make!
