  • Necklace chain or cord

What you'll do

fabric flower step 1

Cut a long strip out of your fabric. It should be approximately 1-inch wide and 3-feet long. You can make it even longer if you want to have a larger flower.

Tie a knot in the end of the fabric, and trim away any excess fabric at the end of the knot.

Slowly start twisting the fabric and wrapping it around the knot.

Once you have wrapped it a couple of times, add a dab of hot glue to keep it in place.

Fold down the tail of the fabric and press it over the hot glue. Be careful not to burn your fingers. Trim off any extra fabric.

Put another dab of hot glue on the back of the flower and add the bail mount so that you can hang the necklace. Bail mounts can be found in the jewelry making section of most craft stores.
