Today’s DIY: White Bridal Fabric Necklace

Fabric Necklaces are in, so why not wear one on your BIG day? I have created a necklace that you can wear in the summertime or at a summer wedding. It’s asymmetry and the many different ways how you can wear it and add on to it make it even more appealing.

PS. It’s all handmade too 🙂

1. Find fabric or lace or tulle that you are going to use for the main part of your necklace – which means you are going to add on to it, sew things on, braid it, knot it, etc – wherever your imagination takes you.

2. Choose the pieces that you are going to add on to the necklace:

3. Add on as many or as few decorating items as you want

I added a ruffled ribbon with lace and some pearly beads as the main centerpiece.

And this is how it looks on a person (aka me – couldn’t make Sam wear it 😉 )

Happy DIYing everyone, and sorry for the picture quality 🙂

Love you all,

Crocheted Flower Necklace with Vintage Lace

Sunday’s DIY project is this crocheted necklace, that took me about 2 hours to make.

I learned how to crochet when I was in 6th or 7th grade. There was a crocheting club next to my house (yes in good ol’ Russia we had everything, including crocheting clubs), besides my mom was a great influence on me. She could knit, sew, crochet, cross stitch, etc. and well she still can do all these things. Recently, she has offered me a crocheted summer dress that she made last year, but I just couldn’t take it away from her, so I said “no”.

Back to the project though! You are going to need: some yarn, some filling, lace (I used 2 different kinds – white and beige), a crocheting hook (mine is 1.3 mm), 4 beads, some thread and a needle.

Start with crocheting all pieces:

Pick your lace, I used this vintage one

Create a ruffled piece like this, to sew on to the back of the crocheted flower:

Using a different kind of lace (or the same one, it’s up to you) create ruffles and sew them to the back sides of the smaller flowers:

Sew the flowers to the crocheted chain, tie knots to keep the beads in place, and tie the ends together.

Loving my DIY project of the day, what can I say 🙂
