I bought some pearl necklaces for my mom, my sisters and myself last week. The plan was to embellish them and give them for gifts on Mother's Day. Of course that didn't happen because I ran out of time. Instead I finished them today. Within an hour, I made flowers for the four necklaces and a ring. I love the way they look.
I added a couple more flowers to mine, I like things grouped in threes.
I bought the pearls at Forever 21, so they aren't real, but I thought they were still good quality for the $3.80 price tag.
To make the flowers I twisted the fabric and rolled it, like I was making a snail with play-do. I used a hot glue gun to hold it in place. Then I glued a safety pin to the back. Once it was dry I pinned the flowers to the pearls.
If the flowers go out of style, I can take them off.
I also mad a ring. You can follow Vanessa's tutorial for her flower ring HERE.
