Recently, the amazing etsy shop, Laurl, sent me a ton of fun little flowers! I was so excited when I opened all these well wrapped tissue packages and found…

Flowers galore!!!!

I had so many ideas running through my mind for what I could make with them. In one morning, I made:

A pink bib necklace

A Purple Headband

(Paired two styles of Laurl’s flowers with a rolled rosette and then added a white flower from Laurl to the center of the rosette.)

and a black headband.

I can’t even begin to tell you how nice it was to just make some accessories without having to make the flowers first. (Be sure you scroll all the way to the end of this post… there’s a great coupon code included!)

Want to make a bib necklace for yourself? Here’s how…

Cut a smile shape out of felt.

Pick the flowers you want and lay them out on the felt to see how the colors will look together.

Start gluing them down (sorry it’s blurry—I didn’t want the glue to cool).

Glue the ends of your ribbon to the back of the necklace and then put small circles of felt over the ends of the ribbon.

Melt the ends of your ribbon so it won’t fray.

Look how pretty it is!

I love the bow at the back!

  6. Awesome! I completely understand what you mean about making flowers yourself. I worked all day yesterday on project that I will be blogging about tomorrow. I know it would not have taken so long if I had known how to make flower before hand but goodness a lot of work goes into those little things. If you have time come over and check it out.
