My Ruffle Necklace!



I was browsing a new blog I recently found, Poppy Chic, when I saw this pretty little thing;
it speaks perfectly to one half of my split personality. I love fun, springy colors and little floral patterns! There are days when I want every corner of my whole house to be covered in things like this.


I was really inspired by how easy it was, so I made this version of it this afternoon:

I used a beige chiffon for the ruffle and a pale peach silk for the flower. It speaks to the other half of me, which loves simplicity, soft, romantic fabrics, and light, monochromatic color schemes.


I constantly go back and forth with my decorating between those two styles. Do any of you do that? Or do you have your style nailed down? I always wonder if it's just me who doesn't know what she wants.

Anyway, I had to share the tutorial with you, because it is incredibly easy! You don't need any jewelry making skills at all. Or even a sewing machine for that matter!

Here's the tutorial. Have fun with it!

And have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Love the new blog look!

    Funny you mention your different styles, I was just thinking about that myself. I have several "style personalities" too. I love simple, classic looks, but then I also enjoy bold, bright colors and patterns.

    super cute necklaces.

  4. Your necklace is beautiful Disney, it made me say "ooooohhh so pretty" out loud! I am beyond thrilled that you liked my tutorial...I may have even done a little happy dance when I saw this post :) I hope everyone makes a little piece of flower ruffle happiness for themselves!

  5. i feel the same way! but i think that the monochromatic side of me usually wins. i usually like it longer than the fun colorful things.

  19. I love it! I completely agree with you on the style and my dilemma matches yours to a T. I guess the balance between the 2 gives us more character in the long run...no one knows what to expect! :)

  20. Simple yet beautiful. I love the girly girl things in life. This would be cute with little buttons added or any kind of small embellishment. Not alot though because it would take away from the already beautiful necklace.

    watch for your package Disney! It should be there soon!
    Heart,

  22. Love your blog! But what happened to the "previously featured" category?

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha I totally feel that way!

    It's hard to juggle two different styles!

  24. Oh Disney, sometimes reading your blog is like taking a page out of my own book. Good times, I always tell my husband I feel like I have split personalities sometimes. What is nice is as I get older the 2 {or maybe more} are beginning to blend together more.

    Which ever side is showing today they are both awesome.

  27. Love it!! I will definitely try it out :)
    You're not the only one. I also have thousands of little persons inside of me and they all like different things. But I think that's a good thing cause you don't have to settle down just for one type, you can try them all :)
