Some Sort of Center Bead
|I didn't use the glass pearls in this pic. They were too small for what I was going for.|
I only used 1 sheet of felt (Michaels) for this necklace. First, I cut out my circles. You can make them as large or as small as you'd like. I like big and flashy :) You'll use the rest of the felt as backing for the necklace. Then I began wrapping the eyelet lace trim (Hancock fabrics for SUPER cheap) around the circle of felt. It would probably have been easier to start from the center of the circle and wrap out but I would have ended up using a ton of lace and the flower would have been too tight. I wrapped and used my hot glue gun to secure the trim. Glued a bead in the center.

After the glue completely cools, cut the felt around the flowers so that it's not visible. My chain didn't have a clasp but you can always get chain from Michaels/a craft store with a clasp already attached.
This necklace is super cute and really easy to make. I would recommend another type of glue if you know of anything that can be used on fabric and beads and is sturdy with all your materials. But not everyone is a total tard when it comes to glue guns. And on that note: Happy Crafting :)
