DIY: Fabric Pom Necklace

My sister was visiting last week and we were inspired to get a little crafty after running across this post at Little Miss Momma.  Neither of us had ever made any jewelry before, so we decided to go for it!  Supplies for this DIY:  fabric color of choice, felt, chain,  hot glue gun

Here are the finished products ( I made a charcoal, as seen in the tutorial, and she made the white).  We got enough of each fabric, so we could both make one in each color.  I was the chosen neck model because I happen to be the one with a bra on!!!  :)



Please see the original tutorial for details, but here is a little step by step of our process. 

First, we poured ourselves some margartias (not a necessary step, but it makes it more fun!) and opened up the IPad 2 (lucky sis has one!):



















We bought our fabric from Hob Lob.  We chose white and charcoal broadcloth (3.99/yard).


We cut a lot of fabric circles!



We made 5 fabric poms per necklace.


We purchased our chains from Michael's.  We chose a chain very similar to the one used in the tutorial (3.99 each). 


We attached the poms to the chain and trimmed around the felt.



Voila!  So cute for a pop of color around the neckline!  I want one in every color and just might have to make one!
