Downeast Basics Inspired Petal Necklace


I'm so excited to start off Hostage Week here at Fun to Craft! Today we will be making a Downeast Basics inspired necklace for less than $1.00...yup you read that right LESS THAN ONE DOLLAR!!

Here's my inspiration and how to make it yourself:

Cute right!

Step One: Supplies

I don't know about you but I go though accessories faster than clothes so I always have old necklaces etc lying around. I grabbed this old necklace and a pack of artificial flower petals from the Target dollar section.

Step Two:

Since my necklace had a 2nd chair I carefully opened one of the rings and removed it to put the petals on.

Step Three:

Use a craft knife to cut a little "x" in the center(ish) of your flower and string onto your necklace.

Step Four:

Every third flower fold in half before cutting your "x" and string on still folded.

Step Five:

Continue pattern until finished! I used 17 petals.

(50 petals in pack for $1.00 - 17 Petals used = 34 Cents Total!!!)

I re-attached the top chain and Voila!

Well this Hostage thing has been fun but I'm going to pass Stacey on to the next kidnapper and get back to work over on {Aly&Ash}! Come visit and check out some of my other projects including:
