Rose Ring & Rose Necklace Tutorial

*This is a sponsored post on behalf of Cricut, however all opinions and statements are mine and mine alone.
I have been playing around with my Cricut Explore and made some fun Rose Jewelry for the girls and their Back To School wardrobe.  I thought it would be fun to made them some accessories to match their school clothes.  Today I am going to share with you how to make your own Rose Ring and/or Rose Necklace in any color you need.  You could also make up the roses and add them to virtually anything you can think of…barrettes, headband, belts, shirt, notebooks, etc.  These are a fun way to add some color to pretty much anything.

Here is what you will need…
Materials:
  • Cardstock

  • white pearl
  • ring form or a round bail plate (3/4 inch) for the necklace (Michael’s)
  • laquer spray or varnish spray to give it a nice “waterproof” finish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Cut out the 5 flowers on card stock.
  2. Line up flowers from smallest to largest.
  3. Fold up the petals of each flower and bend them so that they look like a 3D flower.
  4. Glue the pearl onto the middle of the smallest petal.
  5. Glue the smallest petal to the one just bigger so that the petals are overlapping.
  6. Continue to do this with each petal so that the largest petal is on the bottom and you have 5 layers of the flower.
  7. Glue the flower onto the round necklace bail or the ring form.

Valentine’s Day Necklace

I saw the CUTEST gumball necklace a couple of years ago from One Charming Party and LOVED it.  I always wanted to make one.  This year I decided to make a wooden bead necklace that was similar.  I love the idea of giving a necklace that someone could really wear instead of candy.  These Valentine necklaces would be perfect to give to your daughter(s), granddaughter(s) and nieces…or even your girlfriends!

To make the necklaces all you need to do is paint the wooden beads (in the size or mixed sizes that you want).  I put them on a wooden skewer to paint them easier.  When you have two coats (allow to dry between each coat) you can add a shiny urethane gloss.  I use one that can be found right by the craft paints.

When the shiny coating has dried you can string them onto a thin ribbon.  Tie a knot at the end of the beads and then tie in a bow.  I burn the edges of the cut ribbon to prevent it from fraying.  The ribbon just melts and seals so it won’t fray.
