DIY: Peter Pan Collar Necklace

Hey guys! I've been loving the peter pan collar trend lately. And if you type "peter pan collar" into Etsy, there are literally pages and pages of collars that you can buy. But if you're looking for something more "you," don't want to buy one, or simply have fabric lying around, then this diy is for you!

What you need:
  • Large piece of fabric (I used a dress I never wore)
  • Scissors
  • Pen or pencil
  • Ribbon
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Needle and thread
  • Embellishments, like buttons or sequins (optional)

Start by using your pen to create the shape you want.
Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect and you can always tweak it later.


Using your measuring tape, make sure its even on both sides.


Cut your necklace out, but leave an inch of room in case you want to make it bigger.
I laid mine against my chest and looked into the mirror to make sure I liked the size.
Since the fabric was so wrinkled, I had to quickly iron it.


Cut your ribbon in half, thread your needle,
and start sewing your ribbon to the fabric on both sides and voila! You're done!


Since the fabric is so thin, it's a bit flimsy, so I'll probably back it with a thicker fabric somehow.
I also left it as is, but you could add buttons or sequins or a lightweight brooch.
The options are endless!
