DIY – RHINESTONE COLLAR NECKLACE

3.05.2012

The Inspiration…

What you’ll need:

– 2 collar pieces cut from white felt or rubber flannel – pattern downloadable here

– rhinestones – and lots of ’em!

– a single hole punch or leather rotary hole punch

– 1 yard of ribbon or other tying material

E6000 glue

– scissors

– tweezers

Step one. Using the pattern template cut out the two collar pieces. Because this pattern is scalloped, I decided to sketch it into a smooth edged pattern so that I wouldn’t have trouble with the placement of my rhinestones.  If you are using glitter or fabric, then you could totally keep the scalloped edges for a different look.  Create a hole at each end, using the rotary hole punch.

 

Step three. Working from the outside in start applying your rhinestones.  Before I actually glued them down I would place the line on the collar to make sure I had enough stones and they fit properly.  Continue with this line by line, being very careful about how much glue you add, as it will affect how closely you can place the rhinestones.

Step four. Once all your rhinestones are attached and you’ve left the collar to sit for an hour to dry cut the ribbon/tie into two half-yard lengths. Thread the ribbon/tie through the hole on the tapered end, place a drop of glue at the tip and fold it closed.

 

Step five. Just like that your Kate Spade inspired peter pan collar is done – pair the collar with your favorite color block blouse and vibrant pants to finish the look.
