To DIY for: Peter Pan Pear Collar

"Take off your geek chic training wheels and become a little wiser with this do it yourself pearl collar necklace." Or at least that's what it says on Style Hive where I found this little DIY charmer. I say work it!

What you'll need:
1 piece of 81/2 x 11 creme piece of felt
2 yards of strung pearls.
glue gun or E600 adhesive
1 ft ribbon
1 piece of paper
hole puncher

How to:
Step 1
- Fold your piece of paper in two. Sketch half of your collar from the folded side out. You can also print an image of your favorite peter pan collar and trace over half of it to make this part easier. Then cut out your paper collar and unfold it to reveal your stencil.
Step 2 - Place your paper stencil on the felt and trace around the edges. Then cut out your felt collar.
Step 3 - Place your adhesive around the outer edges of the collar.
Step 4 - Keeping the pearls strung, carefully place them in rows behind one another. You can cut the end of each strand and continue to use it as each row gets smaller.
Step 5 - Add in pearls where missing and let dry.
Step 6 - To turn your collar into a necklace punch holes at each end.
Step 7 - Thread one piece of ribbon through each hole and tie.
