Spring Washer Necklace, Rolled Strip Fabric Tutorial and a GIVEAWAY!

I’ll be On Studio 5 today showing how to make my fun Washer Necklace! I’ve spiced them up for Spring! To celebrate I’m giving away a Necklace so be sure to enter in today’s comments section! Read on for more details and to learn how to make these fun Rolled Strip flowers I’ve added!

I spray painted these washers blue! Be sure to use paint that will adhere to metal!




Here is the original Washer Necklace I did! You can find the how to HERE!!! Look for a new washer necklace technique comeing after Easter! It’s soooo easy and versatile!

Rolled Strip Fabric Rosettes!

To make these beautiful rosettes you’ll first need to make strips of fabric! Each strip should be approximately 1/2″ wide by 20″ long! Fabric rips easily so cut a slit at the top of your fabric and pull! You can also use scissors to cut your strips!

Tie a knot at one end.

Fold your tail down and hold it like shown above!
This will act as our flower bud or the center of the rose!

Now we’ll start to wrap the strip around the bud. Each time we’ll twist and hold it in place with our fingers. Keep circling the center and you’ll see your flower grow!

When your flower is about the size of a silver dollar we can glue it to a sheet of felt. Create a pool of hot glue on your felt and press your flower onto it! Continue wrapping and folding the remaining strip of fabric until you achieve your desired size.

Tuck in the end and glue around the flower making sure all of the edges are glued into place!



Add a few more rosettes until you like the way it looks!



Trim off the excess felt and glue a pin to the back! It’s ready to adorn a necklace or shirt or Jacket! It’s the perfect fun Spring accessory that is up for
the challenge of spicing up your Spring look!!

Want to win something fun!!!?!!!

    I actually spent money and got a nice Easter dress. I figured spend more on a really nice, versatile piece; than only spending a little on a bunch of mediocre pieces. Now I make a bunch of different sets of jewelry that coordinate with the dress. It's just too bad that Conference is on Easter Sunday:)

    What cute flowers and necklace ideas! I plan on making them with my grand daughter, who is 10. She and I live far away from eachother, but I will be visiting soon. We love to do all different craft ideas together, she loves to learn them and make things for her friends. I also thought it would be a fun wedding craft idea for decorating little girls shoes and dresses.

    I tend to wear only a few colors, but I think it's time to spice it up with some turquoise, pink, yellow, etc. It'd be easy (and cheap!) to do this with accessories like these fabric rosettes. I'll try them as soon as I can get to the craft store.
