Rhinestone Bib Necklace DIY

Last week was a whirlwind, and I can't believe we have arrived at thanksgiving week.
Little V is finally on the mend, but now Gabe is down. Lets see if we can all make it to thanksgiving dinner in one piece! No matter what, I am cooking lots of food. Its the meal I have been looking forward to all year! ;)


This is a DIY that you can make to dress up your holiday party outfits. You can even wear it over a casual round neck blouse with jeans. Many fun options:) I just used some left over rhinestone appliques I had on hand, but you can use any applique shapes or trims.

Supplies:
Fastener 
Needle and thread
Fabric with white felt backing
Rhinestone trims or appliques with iron on backing (find a bunch here)
hot glue

Instructions:
1. Measure and cut out your bib shape and wrap around your neck to make sure it fits! You can create any type of shape on the ends as you like.
2. Sew your two part fastener piece to each side of the bib (on the rounded edges) Test to make sure it hooks well.
2. Cut up your rhinestone appliques into small pieces, and arrange around your fabric.
3. Hot glue the pieces to secure (stays really well with iron on backing and doesn't show)

Hope this gives you some new alternatives to your Christmas lineup:)

  13. This is such a simple way to make a collar necklace! I'm in the middle of making one from a pattern and the sewing part always gets me because I hate the time it takes to set up everything! I am totally adding this version to my list.

    Glad to hear little V is feeling better! Oh, and the gift guide is AMAZING. Your talents shock me! Can I please have your brain? ;)

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Anna!
