Flowers and Wooden Beads

I have been seeing necklaces all over the place with fabric flowers on them, so I decided to make one of my own for a Christmas gift for someone.  I learned how to make the flowers from a tutorial on Tea Rose Home, one of my fav blogs, and I have been making them into pins for gifts, and hair ornaments, but I decided I wanted to try a wooden bead and  flower necklace.  I got the pretty, blue enameled, wooden beads on an old necklace I got in a box at a yard sale.  The necklace was far from pretty, but I saved the beads to be re-purposed, and I got the gray organdy ribbon on clearance at  Michaels for twenty-five cents.  So all in all, it probably only cost me about $1.00 to make it.

  1. Very cute! I have been wanting to try making one of these after seeing some in a catalog selling for an absurd amount of money. You'd never tell that yours only cost a dollar.
