Last Minute Green - fabric necklace fun!

What?! you're not wearing green, sore from all the pinches?? Whip this up quick!

So the base of the flower isn't anything new - you cut 4 circles fold each one and then fold it again so it's a triangle, then glue all the triangles together onto a circle.  This is everywhere in the blog world so I didn't do a tutorial, but here's what the back looks like:
What I DID come up with was that fun center - and so easy.  Here's the how-to:
--Take an extra circle and put a glob of hot glue in the middle of the back:
--Plop it down into the center of your flower and scrunch/pinch the glue area, as shown:
That's it - it should look like this:
Put them into necklace form by using my fabric necklace tutorial.  See how the folds kind of fluff up -
Fun, right??  Oh, and look it matches my camera strap I won on a blog giveaway awhile ago - -
Have a great Green Day (my favorite color, ya know!)

Ooh! Love the fun little twist you used for the center of the flower! It's adorable!


This is really cute and looks like a fun and fast craft! Gotta love instant gratification!

Very cute. I love green too. It's what I see from May through October. The rest of the year is white. SO, right now I'm longing to see GREEN again!!! :-0

The special center that you came up with adds some extra ruffle - and I love it!

Love the centers! I'm always trying to figure out what to put in the middle and I love this!

So lovely! :) Thanks for sharing how to make one of these fabric necklaces.
