I was asked by Smile Jamaica to demonstrate a DIY statement necklace; I chose to show the popular and very trendy peter-pan collar necklace. This is an easy way to update any look; add to a denim shirt, a lace or sheer blouse, a round neck t-shirt or a classic cocktail dress and you will transform your outfit to something on trend on a very low budget.
* Optional step * Using the glue gun affix white lace trim to the back of the felt leaving some over which will hide any imperfections around the edges.
This is such an affordable way to update a look and a great idea for moms with old enough daughters to bond over a crafting session. Search through old broken accessories and use stones and gems to increase the glam effect. I even used a Christmas tree ornament and took it apart to get stones from it. The general idea is to use what you have to reinvent and add new life to unused items. Designs can be created using vintage buttons with rhinestones and sequins that will add sparkle and brighten up any outfit :) Have fun crafting! and if and when you attempt this DIY please be so kind and post a comment here :)
