Guest Project — Anthropologie-inspired Bib Necklace!!

14 Dec

I think I’ll spare you all the mushy details about the admiration, respect and general happy feelings I have towards Jen and the fabulous TT&J blog.  She is basically pure awesome {but you all know that}, so I’ll skip to the real reason I am here today…

To teach you how to make this super duper, crazy easy, Anthropologie inspired, lace and pearl bib necklace.



And this is me, Little Miss Momma {aka Ashley}, wearing said necklace and taking photos of myself through the bathroom mirror {I kinda do that a lot}.


I have a little blog where I like to write about my life lessons as a Momma-in-training {with some occasional crafting during nap time}.

And now, lets make a necklace together:

Here’s what you need:

Beige felt {about a square foot}

Pretty Trimming/Lace

Necklace chain {mine is 24 inches, but 18 works well too}

Pearls or other embellishments

Glue gun

First, cut out three felt circles in the size you want your lace flowers.

Cut one circle larger than the others–this will be the middle flower.

Apply a circle of hot glue around the border of one of the felt circles.

Apply the edge of the lace to the the glue.

Continue this process until you have glued down the lace spiraled all the way to the center. Cut the extra lace and glue down the end.

Glue down your pearl embellishments into the center of your flowers.

Now, lay out the flowers on top of the felt in the shape of your necklace.

Glue down the middle flower first.


Next, we get the chain ready.

Here is the chain I ended up using {not the same as the one in the supplies picture}.

Cut the necklace in half.

Apply hot glue to the back of the flower and lay about 3/4 inch of the chain in the glue.

Repeat the same step with the other chain piece.

Now turn over the flowers and glue them into place on either side of the center flower. Lastly, trim the remaining felt from around the flowers.

And that’s it!

Here is another necklace I made using a similar tutorial {click here}.



Happy Crafting!
