Web Wednesday: Faux Enamel Flowers

Now that winter is gone, it is time to update your springtime accessories. That means it is time to add some bright and bold beautiful colors into your wardrobe. This faux enamel flower necklace is a perfect addition for this time of year. This retro inspired craft is not just fun, but it’s also fashionable. This necklace was found over on the craft blog, Take Your Vitamin C. Below are the supplies you will need to create this project, and to learn how to make it click here.

Supplies you will need

  • heavy paper: I used both 90 lb. watercolor paper and posterboard, they worked equally well
  • cardstock: solid brights
  • Fiskars punches: I used 1″ circle, a heart, 2 sizes of oopsie daisy, and a large scalloped circle
  • Plaid’s Dimensional Magic in clear
  • Mod Podge for paper, or your favorite paper adhesive that will hold with moisture
  • white acrylic paint (optional)
  • small flat paintbrush (for Mod Podge)
  • buttons or gems for flower centers
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • wire cutters (if you have shank buttons)
