Flower Chic: Make a Flower Necklace

Kelly  |  September 25

A while back I showed you how to make daisies into earrings, a necklace, and sprinkled throughout your locks. Jess Wilcox and I shot this second look, with moody, fall, jewel toned flowers, and  a ruby red lip.

For the earrings I used a funny little flower called gomphrena (the name needs some work). And  for the ring, I found the most amazing purple passion vine flower. This flower looks like its from another planet, no? You can find the instructions for making the ring and earrings here.

This time round, I made a dramatic flower collar or necklace. I used pink and red ranunculus, blue muscari, lavender clematis,  and light pink gomphrena from Florabundance.

To make the necklace:

- Chicken wire (at your local hardware store)

- pliers or wire cutter 

- floral wire

- floral tape

- 1 yard of lace ribbon

Use the chicken wire as the base to hook your flowers into. I bunched 3 or 4 flowers together, and then wrapped the stems together with floral tape. I made several bunches like this and then I attached them to the chicken wire. Using floral wire, I attached the chicken wire to the lace ribbon. And tada! A flower necklace.
