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.

While this project is made entirely out of budget materials, it will be hard for anyone else to know that this project was crazy cheap to make. The best crafts make cheap makes look like a million dollars, and this is one of those dollar store crafts that does just that. This DIY necklace is as hip as it is easy to make. The mixed media combo of a faux flower and fancy pearls really achieve an eclectic flair that will easily update and upgrade and outfit.


  • 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.

TONS of possibilities for this DIY necklace. I think I would make a Halloween necklace.Let's see, I'll pick a deep purple or black wide velvet ribbon. A string of black or purple pearls. And I would find a black and/or purple flower with glitter on it- the kind that the craft stores sell during the Halloween season. It would look amazing and I'd be ready for the party!

I made two of these and wow, they were easy to make and so pretty. You can really change the look by the color of the beads and ribbon you choose. There are unlimited choices of silk flowers too and if you look at the section of the store that sells flowers to wear in your hair, you'll find even more.

I just love this necklace...and the best part, it's really easy to change the look to match your outfit by simply changing the the color of the ribbon. I received lots of compliments when I wore one I had made with a navy ribbon to go with an orange dress that I wore to a work party.

This looks like a necklace that I paid way too much for. Now I know I can make my own!

I really like this necklace. I think it would make a lovely bridesmaids gift...and so budget friendly! :)
