Fall Rosette Necklace

One of the things I like most about fall is the colors.  I love browns, oranges, and golds.  I planned this necklace long ago because I needed the perfect accessory for my fall wardrobe!  So I present to you my new favorite jewelry piece--this fall rosette necklace!  I don't consider myself an expert at all in jewelry-making, so this is a tutorial easy enough for all of us!  Come along with me, and I'll show you how to make one of your own!
For this project, you will need:
* Felt scraps
* Fall-colored fabrics  (I found mine on the Red Tag clearance section at JoAnn's.)
* Necklace chain or ribbon would work too!
* Hot glue gun
* Scissors
To start out, I cut strips of fabric that were about 1 inch wide and varying lengths.  Be creative. I experimented to see how long I would need to get the rosettes to be just the right size for me.  To make the roesttes, you tie a knot in the end of the fabric strip.  Then you start wrapping around and hot-gluing as you go.  I use this House of Smith's tutorial to create my rosettes, the same one I used in my crepe paper rose wreath.
I went a little crazy on my rosettes!  I had only planned to make a few, but I just couldn't stop myself!  I ended up making 8 total, but I did scrap a few that didn't fit into the scheme I had in mind.  (The cotton fabrics were a bit harder for me to turn into rosettes.  The gold silky fabric worked out much better!  Just FYI.)  I arranged the rosettes on a scrap of felt.
Now, I hot glued the rosettes onto the felt in my desired formation.  Then I trimmed the felt carefully so you wouldn't be able to see it from the front.  This is the ugly back side!

Now I just hot glued the chain onto the back of the felt.  I also hot glued one more piece of felt over the chain to sandwich the chain snuggly in between brown felt.

I'll be honest.  I am in love with this necklace!  And I wear it almost every day!  It works with brown, yellow, white, and even orange.  Can't wait for the weather to get cold enough to bust out my fall boots and add those as the final accessory!

Enjoy your week... I am gearing up for a CRAZY time in the next few days!  We are trying to pack up to move and leave for out of town this week (all without my husband!)  Yikes!
