Anthro Inspired Pom Necklace

Ashley Crafts!

{Inspired by the craft-a-licious Little Miss Momma}

*Disclaimer- the first half of my pictures were taken with my blackberry cell phone camera. Then I remembered, OH SHIT, I should use our new camera. Doh.

Materials needed for this sweet little project:
- Cheap felt
- Hot glue gun
- Any color cotton fabric (I used black)
- Scissors
- Chain of your choice
- Hot tea- Cinnamon Vanilla via Trader Joes to be exact

Step One: Cut out five small felt circles

Step Two: Using the felt circles as a model, stack some black fabric and cut that into circles. You'll need a lot and they do NOT need to be perfect.

Step Three: Scrunch up your black fabric one petal at a time

Step Four: Put some hot glue on the bottom of the scrunched up fabric and stick on your felt circle. You'll need at least 10-15 scrunched pieces for each felt circle.

Step Five: Finish doing that for all five felt circles. Next, arrange your poms on a large piece of felt.

Step Six: Hot glue gun each pom to the large felt.

Step Seven: Hot glue the chain onto the back of the felt (sorry, I missed a picture of this step somehow).

Step Eight: Cut around the edges of the felt/poms until you end up with this....

Step Nine: Model it in your bathroom mirror.

Not bad, eh?

Step Ten: Marvel in the mirror and think, I am a domestic goddess.

Helpful Hints: I plan on making another one of these-- a brown one but I'm going to buy BROWN felt.

I used white this time around and it's still a tiny bit noticeable against the black. If you want to make black poms, go with the black felt as well.

Thanks for sharing, Ashley! I love it. Our necklaces turned out very similar, except the fabric color.

This was such a fun craft to make!

Adorable! And a tip. You can buy felt in any shade in the kids craft section near the markers and foam things. A square is usually@$0.33/each and should be large enough to make 2-3 necklaces. That way you are not stuck with a half yard of leftovers.
