Floral Collar DIY

Here's a little spring inspired cardi makeover. Take a look...
Supplies: Fabric floral stems, an old cardigan, felt the same color as your cardigan.
Pantry Supplies: Scissors, needle + thread.

First, cut out the base of the collar. You'll measure it against the cardigan to make sure it fits perfectly. Next, pick the flowers off of the stems and begin sewing them onto the collar. Fill the entire collar with flowers until the felt is no longer visible. Lastly, hand stitch it onto the cardigan! The main reason I hand stitched it was so that it would be an easy removal once the end of summer rolls around. But it would definitely still be removable if you machine stitched it instead.

 There you have it! Just in time to match all the blooming flowers we're so luckily beginning to witness. I'm off to RVA to work on craft projects all day! xo.

  2. What a fun idea! This would also make a cute, removable addition to the flap of a fabric purse.

  4. This is a really nice alternative to a peter pan collar, I repeatedly think about attaching fake flowers to things but had never considered making a collar using them, very cute!
