diy: rosette necklace

this probably isn’t very surprising, but anthropologie is my favorite store ever. i’m still debating working there part time for the employee discount, if only there were a few more days in the week. i don’t usually splurge on their jewelry though because it’s so expensive and trendy, but that doesn’t mean i don’t love it. this diy is inspired by everything anthro- enjoy!

i’ve seen lots of different tutorials for making rosettes, but this is what worked best for me. here’s what you’ll need:

  • fabric for the rosettes
  • brass chain and clasp
  • felt for the backing
  • ribbon
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • wire cutters and pliers (to add the clasp to the chain)

1) tear fabric into 1 to 1.5 inch strips of varying lengths. frayed edges are good!

2) to make the first rosette, tie a knot in the end of a strip of fabric

3) fold the fabric in half length-wise and start wrapping around the knot. hot glue periodically to keep the rosette together.  twist the fabric as you go to make it look more interesting. twist the end of the fabric to the back of the rosette and glue it down.

4) make as many rosettes as you desire and arrange them on a piece of felt. when you’re happy with the arrangement, glue the rosettes to the felt.

5) carefully cut the felt backing away from around the rosettes.

6) sew or glue the chain to the top two flowers.

7) cover the chain with an extra piece of felt. this adds stability to the chain (and i think it makes the back look a little nicer). cut the chain in the middle and add the clasp.

8 ) if you wish, add a final touch with some ribbon. I intertwined the ribbon with the chain and tied a loop at the end.

there you go! who needs anthropologie?! {just kidding. please don’t take anthropologie from me.}
