DIY: Flower Girl Shabby Pearl Necklace Tutorial



My daughter loves to go through my craft stash, and every time she finds the string of pearls, she says, "Make me necklace Mama, please!" So I decided to give it a try. I let her pick out the colors she wanted and just went for it.

Here is what you will need:


Glue Gun with Hot Glue
Necklace blank - found at craft store for a couple bucks. I think Walmart has them.
3/8" Ribbon - I used gross grain, but you could also use satin or another type.
Flowers - These could be shabby chiffon, or rolled rosette, etc.
Felt - I used white to match the necklace.
String of faux pearls - I buy mine by the yard at the fabric store.

First, I wrapped the pearls around the necklace and cut to length. Then I glued the first pearl at each end down, and then used glue to wrap the ribbon around that portion.



Then I cut two small felt circles out and placed them where the flowers would go on the necklace. Then you apply glue to the back of the flowers and glue them in place.


Easy Peasy! And my little girl loved it!

  7. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.
