DIY Project: Make Your Own Floral Bib Necklaces and Headbands

| 7/13/2010 2:52:45 PM

I’m a bit of a bargain shopper, and if I can’t find something in the right price range I usually try to make it. A sucker for feminine frills and an accessories addict, I instantly fell in love with the bib necklace trend. I was able to find instructions to make fabric rosettes and used my craftiness to make my own bib necklace.

I like to wear my floral bib necklace with a solid colored V-neck shirt. If you tie the ribbon at just the right length, it looks like your necklace is actually part of the neckline of your shirt. It adds a nice feminine polish to an otherwise simple outfit. Here’s how to make your own:

1/4 yard of organic fabric
4 feet of matching ribbon
One sheet of matching felt
Matching thread
Sewing pins and a needle
Hot glue gun

1. Cut fabric into five strips, 3 inches wide by 3 feet long.

2. Take one strip and fold one corner down, making a point.
