Queen of Hearts Choker
Show your mom, sister, or friend how much you love them this Valentine's Day with this Queen of Hearts Choker and earring set from I Love to Create. Made with doilies and felt hearts, this jewelry set is lightweight and makes a great accessory for Valentine's Day! If you'd prefer, you can make a longer necklace instead of a choker, or create a bracelet instead. This simple and fun project is great to do with kids, and also makes a fun accessory for a Queen of Hearts Halloween costume.

- 11 3 1/4" round paper doilies
- 22 1'x1 1/4" felt hearts
- 40 10mm silver plated jump rings
- 2 silver plated swivel lobster clasps
- 2 silver plated pinch bail ear wires
- 34 gauge silver or gold Artistic Wire
- Aleene's Fabric Fusion Peel and Stick Sheets
- Wire cutters
- 2 pairs chain nose pliers
- 1/16" hole punch (I used my Crop-a-dile)
Cut out the center of the doilies. Use 34 gauge wire threaded into every fourth or fifth hole in frame around open center to gather the doily together into a "flower." Once you have the holes threaded, grasp both wire tails and gently pull the doily into a flower. Take your time, be gentle and don't mangle it all by rushing!
Twist wire tail ends together using chain nose pliers. Cut off excess with wire cutters. Make 11 of these.
Use hole punch to punch holes in right and left upper center of each heart.
Place hearts on Aleene's Peel and Stick Sheets. Cut around heart, peel off adhesive backing and sandwich the doilies between two hearts. Make sure the hearts are lined up properly so it's easy to link together later!
Use 4 10mm jump rings to connect each doily heart. (To learn how to properly attach jump rings with tension, visit my Crafty Quickies on YouTube!) Attach two jump rings on the outside edge of the first and final heart in your chain. Repeat for front and back of design. This will prevent the necklace from flip-flopping when worn.
Add the clasps to the final jump ring on the first doily heart in each chain. This is how the necklace is connected, having both stabilizes the design when worn.
- To make earrings, repeat the process of making two doily hearts. but only pierce one hole in each heart so the ear wires can attach. Use pinch bail earrings inserted in the hole of each heart, or you can opt for jump rings and French wires.

I love how this is made with paper dollies, it makes a craft like this easier for someone like me to make! I think if I altered the sizes of this I could make this little set for my Niece for a Queen of hearts costume, she just loves dressing up.

At first glance, you'd think these had fabric backgrounds, but they were paper doilies instead! Money-saving and really cute! These earrings would make cute gifts in either pierced or clip styles!
