{Tutorial Tuesday} A Nifty Leather Flower Necklace

posted on: Tuesday, March 22, 2011

For the second week of One Month to Win it we were asked to make a wearable green item. I'm not Irish, I'm not a big fan of corned beef and cabbage, AND Leprechauns kind of give me the heebee geebee's so I opted for something green that I could wear throughout the entire year. No offense to you Patty Day lovers.
To make my nifty necklace I cut leather scraps into flowers using my Big Kick.
I then glued the flowers to five raised white flower petals that I had detached from a vintage necklace.

I used scrapbooking flowers and pearls to embellish the center of the flowers...and...
Finally, I cut a Mardi Gra necklace in half and I glued it to the backside side of the necklace (I also covered the back in fabric so the leather wouldn't rub off on any of my clothing).

turquoise leather stain on a white shirt=not zesty.
This girl (pointing to self) is giving herself a pat on the back for finishing her fifteen minute project without any interruptions from Hunk or Punk.

    I have a few leathers scraps laying around that I haven't figured out what to do with yet, I think this just might be the thing!

  6. This is gorgeous! Love that you were able to add shape and dimension to the leather by gluing the leather flowers to the vintage flowers! and the layering is perfect.

  7. I love this! I've never worked with leather before, but I think this might be just the project.

  8. The 3D flower effect is what really makes this necklace stand out! Thanks for sharing. Okay to feature and link in a future post so others can come visit? Pearl
