Dots, Dots, Dots...
As we know pearls have always been a symbol of wisdom and class. Pearls always remind me of the late 40's and early 50's when everything was looking so vintage and classic. Wearing pearls can instantly transform your look from casual to sophisticated. Pearls collars necklace compliment almost any look, wear it with a dress in the evening or a crew-neck sweater for the daytime look. And let's not forget, pearls always makes your outfit a little be more fashionable, classic and girly.




What you'll need:

-1 piece of 81/2 x 11 creme piece of felt

-2 yards of strung pearls.

-Glue gun or E600 adhesive

-1 ft ribbon

-Scissors

-1 piece of paper

-Pen

-Hole puncher

And the fun part begins!

Step 1 - Fold your piece of paper in two. Sketch half of your collar from the folded side out. You can also print an image of your favorite peter pan collar and trace over half of it to make this part easier. Then cut out your paper collar and unfold it to reveal your stencil.

Step 2 - Place your paper stencil on the felt and trace around the edges. Then cut out your felt collar.

Step 3 - Place your adhesive around the outer edges of the collar

Step 4 - Keeping the pearls strung, carefully place them in rows behind one another. You can cut the end of each strand and continue to use it as each row gets smaller.

Step 5 - Add in pearls where missing and let dry.

Step 6 - To turn your collar into a necklace punch holes at each end.

Step 7 - Thread one piece of ribbon through each hole and tie.
