Saw it. Pinned it. Did it - Pom Pom Necklace

I love the "Saw it. Pinned it. Did it." link up because it forces me to actually make the things I pin on Pinterest and stop pretend pinning. This week's inspiration came from Little Miss Momma for her Pom Pom Necklace. I absolutely fell in love with it and realized I needed a red one for my wardrobe!

One of the most annoying things about doing a craft off Pinterest is having to buy all the supplies. Luckily for me, this necklace didn't require much, in fact I had everything except the chain which I picked up at Michael's for a whopping $2.

Hot glue gun
Fabric (color of your choice)
Felt (something neutral)

As you can see this project doesn't require that much of either fabric so I used scraps I had laying around the house.

The first step is to cut 5 circles from the felt about 1-1.5 inches in diameter. As you can see below, they do not have to be perfect.

Next, I used a felt circle as my template for the red ones and cut about 10 at a time. I made one pom pom first and found that it took 10 for each circle. I continued to cut all 50 red circles.

Once all your circles are cut, take each individual circle and bunch it. Then glue the tip and place in the center of one of the felt circles. You will continue to do this for all 10 of the red circles you cut.

Once all your pom poms are made, you will want to arrange them on the remainder of the felt you have. Then one at a time, you will glue them bottom three down. Do NOT glue the top two yet.

Take your chain and glue it to each of the top pom poms about an inch down to make the necklace more stable. Once that is done you can glue these to the felt just as you did for the other three.  

All that is left is to trim the felt away until you get a necklace that looks just like this!

If for some reason you don't have the time or desire to make one yourself, I will be giving one lucky reader their very own pom pom necklace as a special thank you for reaching 100 followers! (Just need a few more followers before I host the giveaway!

As for now, I'm linking up with Stephanie @ Beautiful Mess and Katie @Keep Calm & Carry On for SPD! Happy Crafting!
