Make a Flirty Summer Button Necklace!! {tutorial}

I am so excited for Summer! 
Hopefully the warm weather will come to Utah sometime soon.
{It has been snowing here this week.}
In the meantime, I made a few Summer necklaces.
Here’s the first:


Flirty Button Necklace
I love the white and turquoise color scheme. 
It seems so beachy to me!!
If you want to make one here’s what I did:

Cotton Fabric (I used a Dollar Store Flour Sack}
A couple other fabric scraps
Covered Button Kit
Hot Glue Gun
Scrapbook Brads
Here’s what I did:
  • I cut out a felt bib form — about 5 inches wide by 3 inches high.

  • Then I made a couple fabric flowers. Nancy from My Blonde Ambitions has a great tutorial on how to make these.
  • Once I made the fabric flowers. I laid the flowers, buttons and brads on the felt template until I liked the way it looked. Then I glued the flowers, buttons and brads on the felt.
  • The last thing I did was glue two pieces of ribbon onto the back of the felt half circle.
Super easy!
And I love the flirty look of the necklace. 
Perfect for Summer

    My Mom was here and I was looking at your post when she walked in. She said, "where can we buy those? Let's go get some right now!" I had to be like, "I know where this one IS but it's not really a store". So funny. And then I had to be like, Tatertot Jen. And then she got it. We still both love it though. And it might could go on a date with my turquoise ric rac from today. Oh, and I'm thinking of painting some giant shelves turquoise. Like the bright variety. Hmmm….
