Rolled Flower Necklace

Need something quick to wear for Valentine's today??  You can whip up a rolled flower necklace with some scraps of fabric - really, quick and simple - here's how:

--Rip strips of fabric (or sheets, like me!) that are approximately 1 inch wide.

--Follow my previous tutorial on How to Make Rolled Fabric Flowers - I even have a quick video for those who learn best that way.  Make an odd number of flowers, 3 or 5 (my own opinion - I guess you could make even numbers if you want...).  Anyone can join in on the fun:
--Next take your flowers and hot glue them onto a piece of felt in a necklace shape, as shown:
 --Then cut off all the excess felt (but don't cut completely between the flowers - the felt holds them together).  Flip the necklace over and hot glue ribbon on each end.  Then I glued a strip of felt to give it a little more stability.  Here's the back view:
 That's it - tie around your necklace and enjoy the pop of pink it adds to your outfit:
One of my girls wanted to tie it to her head like a headband.  So I one-upped her and said - let's just make it a REAL headband.  So I cut her flowers apart from the necklace shape and glued them on the headband.  I wanted 3, but she wanted to use all 5 - I made it work by layering them and love the dimension that gives.
 So there you go - super cute necklace and super cute headband.  Just don't wear them together - it's super cute overload which has disastrous results, as pictured (don't worry, this was just for you - I didn't go out wearing the necklace and the headband together - yikes!)
Happy Valentine's Day!!
