Nature-inspired Necklaces

Still at the "Schiaparelli-Prada:Impossible Conversations" exhibit at The Met, this time let's check out some necklaces:

These necklaces were designed by Elsa Schiaparelli {shoes are by Miuccia Prada}. Notice that many of them have nature influences:

With these as pegs, I present to you today's blah to TADA! craft...

...A flowery collar necklace!

I started with a piece of felt {remnant from a previous project}.

Then I folded it in half.

Fold again.

Cut to look like a collar {it's a double layer with the center still connected}.

Make flowers out of the felt leftovers.

Attach the flowers to the face of the collar with hot glue. Two strips of ribbon work as the closure mechanism -- glue this in between the two layers, then glue both layers together.

Wear this with a t-shirt or a dress to 
add some TADA! to your outfit!

Here's to an enjoyable weekend, everybody!
