Flowers on a String: Simple Mother's Day Necklace

Was "attempting" to organize my fabric/craft stash when I came across my bag of "felt scraps" - I just can't bring myself to throw it away because there is always at least one more project or use for them.  Please tell me I'm not the only one with this problem dilemma.  

Today's project took care of a few of those scraps . . .  

Materials Needed: Felt, scissors, string/ribbon/ric rac

Cut several flower shapes from felt.  In the center of each flower, cut 2 small parallel lines (as pictured above) to weave your string through. 

Thread flowers on your string.  Tip: To make it easier for little hands to thread the string through, wrap a small piece of tape around one end of the string (to make it hard/shaped like a needle).  

Give it/wear it as a necklace or bracelet!

I love to receive hand made gifts from my children (especially on mother's day).  What is the best mother's day gift you have received?


  1. This is really pretty. I would wear it.

  2. A simple Mother's Day project any Mom would be proud to wear! Great for fine motor skills. Think I better invest in a few more pieces of felt:)

  3. I'm thinking this could also make a good present for a little girl, her own jewelry making kit.

  4. Great "keep 'em busy" project! I think for my craft table/site this will have to be an added thing made BY my kids that can be their thing. So cute!

  5. Hi there! I stumbled upon your site while browsing the web for Mother's Day craft ideas. I loved this project and have included it in my 25 Kid Friendly Mother's Day Crafts post. I've pinned this to my pinterest boards and am a new follower. I would love for you to stop by and check out your post... Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with the world. Happy Mother's Day!

  6. This is such a lovely idea and I so understand about the scraps! Just proves that they were worth saving :)
