Do You Know How Easy It Is To Make This DIY Collar?

Hey Cuties,

I’ve been getting my DIY on as of late; my crafting mojo is in overdrive right now and I’m going to ride the wave. With that said this is another craft, I’ve been wanting to do for a long time.  Pinterest will make you feel like you can make anything.  You don’t need any prior craft abilities to make this collar. Fashion week is starting and I will be rocking my own looks.

DIY Collar Supplies

You can make this collar for $10 or less; now that is fashion on a budget.  Supplies: Felt, collar template, pearls and or beads, glue and ribbon.

DIY Collar

Traced Collar

Felt is really cheap to buy, I’m talking coins only. You can use regular fabric if you want, it will work just fine. You can find a collar template on the internet or you can make one yourself by tracing something circular. Once you have your template trace it onto your felt, I used a silver Sharpie. Note: I cut out two felt collars.

Pearling in progress

I already had pearls so I used those and because they are classic. You can use pearls or other beads or a combination of the two.  I started with the outer edges, no real reason why. If you want, you can go row by row if that works better for you.  I used transparent E6000 glue which requires a facial mask and proper ventilation.

Adding the Ribbon

After you’ve filled your collar up with the pearls and or beads of your choice you will need to add your ribbon.  Flip it over using the same glue and attach your ribbon. You can use ribbon, string, rope, whatever you want. Fun Fact: This ribbon came from my Pandora gift bag.

Ribbon covered

I glued the second piece of felt to the back to cover the ribbon and it is ready to wear. After this picture, I shifted it over a bit so it lined up perfectly.

Completed Collar

I used three different pearl sizes, I used the smaller ones to fill in some of the blank space.

Pearl Collar

This was another quick and easy DIY project. I love the way it turned out, I’m going to make another with jewels, I think that would be hot.  You can style this with a t-shirt, a sweatshirt a button up or whatever else you come up with. There are no styling limits here, just have fun.
