Dollar Store Flower Necklace



Use this bib necklace tutorial from Emi Harrington to make a trendy flower necklace with materials from a dollar store. This dollar store craft shows you how to turn inexpensive faux flowers into a pretty necklace.

Dollar Store Flower Necklace


  • Pearl choker
  • ½ inch ribbon
  • Dollar store flower from a bouquet
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Beads (6 or 7 pearls, and about 40 small beads) OR any buttons or beads  of your choice.




  1. Cut ribbon into 2 lengths of 24 inches each.
  2. Close the choker clasp, and position it on one side. (In this way it will be covered by the flower.)
  3. Fold one strip of ribbon in half, pass the folded end around the choker,  and pass the ends of the ribbon through the fold. Pull up to attach the ribbon to the choker. Repeat with the other strip of ribbon on the opposite side of the choker. (Note: fold the choker so that one strand hangs below the other, refer to the photo.)
  4. Prepare the flower:
    Fold the flower in half, and grasp in your non-dominant hand. Remove the bottom  base of the flower. Cut the stem that protrudes off with scissors. Apply hot glue into  the center of the remaining stem, and all around on the bottom layer of the flower petal. When the glue has cooled, open the layers, and apply a dot of glue between each layer  so the flower won’t fall apart.
  5. Hot glue a pearl in the center of the flower, then hot glue a circle of pearls around the  center pearl. Apply hot glue between the pearls, and drop small beads into the hot glue.
  6. Hot glue a brooch pin on the back of the flower. Pin the flower on one side of the necklace. Tie the ribbons around the neck.
