Princess JEWEL NECKLACE ((hot glue)) - Fun DIY CRAFT for dress-up jewelry - SUPER EASY

I wanted to make this adorable big jewel necklace for a special birthday celebration (Breakfast at Tiffany's theme party) but the only problem was I decided to makit it at 2am :/ Figures! That's what happens when you're a night owl.
The perfectionist in me is screaming about the "messy" look of this craft but I've accepted it and moving on. It did turn out super cute and you can't see the messy back.

 I made a necklace, bracelet, earrings, and ring to match!

Afterwards I gave it to the birthday girl to add to her dress up bin. She loved it and called it her princess jewels. I thought it's so easy and inexpensive that you could make one to match every outfit!

Or if you are having a princess party you could make these as party favors or for all the guest to wear at the party. Such a fun craft!

Jewels (found at Michael's Craft Store)
Hot glue gun
Hot glue
Tulle (softer the better)
Ring base - optional
Earring base - optional

I started out by laying the jewels to make my design. Next, I added a little hot glue to the edge of each jewel and pressed together. I made sure to lay it down after attaching them together to ensure they design would be flat.

Once I completed the design I cut the tulle to a similar shape and trimmed excess. I secured the tulle with a little swirl of hot glue. Once it cools a little you can press it down with your fingers. Be careful! (not pretty on the back but it works)

I used the tip of the hot glue gun (heat, no glue) to melt the rough edges. The tulle made the necklace more secure and after the edges were melted it was unnoticeable when worn. The softer the tulle the less scratchy spots you have to fix.

I attached a ribbon to the ends with hot glue.

The ring is a base I found at the craft store and attached with hot glue. The earrings were little cheap tiny flowers I had that were flat and attached the jewel on top of the flower.

Pennant Birthday Banner Idea - Breakfast at Tiffany's theme party - TUTORIAL - How to - personalized

 I've only made one very simple banner before to use as a photo prop so this was all trial and error. Since it was a Breakfast at Tiffany's theme party I wanted it to have all the extra details. This was SOOOO much fun to make. 

scrapbooking paper
ribbon (banner)
ribbon (extra frills)
card stock
hole punch
hot glue gun
double sided tape (optional)

Picked out complimenting color of scrapbook paper. One with texture, glitter and raised velvet design

Made a template on card stock and traced on the back of the scrap booking paper

Arranged the pattern (that I changed several times)

I wanted the circles large enough to fit the triangle but not go over. I tried tracing a can, ribbon, glass, bowl (was too large) and finally found a beer mug that worked perfectly. This was my hubby's idea of contributing to the craft and to celebrate he should fill that beer mug. :)

Attached the circles with hot glue and used a hole punch for the ribbon holes. Don't make the holes close to the edge or it might not be able to hold the weight and rip. 

 I printed and cut out letters. I know there is an easier process but I used a textured pearlized paper that ink would not print on. Too late to run to the craft store. If you use plain card stock you could eliminate this step by printing and then just cut the circle with the letter on it.

Set out my example. HIGHLY recommend because I changed the pattern a few more times.

Attached letters with double sided tape

Ready to string on ribbon. I made it extra long not knowing how low it was going to hang or where. 

Cut ribbon to add extra frills to the banner :)

Tied and done! Love how it turned out!

So glad I left the ends so long. See the lower banner!? It needed the longer ribbon to hang it below the happy birthday. Whew!

Other party pictures
It was a first birthday so the party started in the late morning. I picked up donut holes that morning. Colored cream cheese icing teal and dipped.  Filled a bowl with sugar to hold them in place. (I started with rice but didn't like how it looked.

Tags on the donuts on a stick and the truffles below were designed from my ETSY shop. Photo and Happy 1st Birthday tags.
