Today's knock-off is brought to us by Elizabeth from Simple Simon & Co., where she shares her creativity with her sister-in-law, liZ. Their designs are beyond amazing...I just can't get enough of pretty much anything and everything they make! They also organize the Project Run & Play competition, so you can imagine how busy they are. I am super appreciative that despite their incredibly busy schedule, Elizabeth took the the time to show us how she made this adorable accessory.
Hi everyone! I am Elizabeth, one half of the duo of sisters-in-law that make up Simple Simon & Co., a place where we blog about our mutual love of sewing, especially for children's wear, the art of homemaking, simple craft projects and other crafting adventures in life.
I am totally in love with anything Olive Juice clothing does and this darling pom pom necklace is no exception. Simple, childlike but still so darling on an outfit.
I also figured out that it would also be the perfect mom-and-me project for a budding-crafty-seven-year-old. And it was. She had so much fun picking out the bead colors and the "sparkly" beads (which I am kind of in love with myself). They are like tiny disco balls and sparkle up a storm. She also decided that these would be a great presents for her friends this Christmas, which will be fun...we just need some more supplies!
The cost of the original necklace is $17.50 but we made 2 necklaces for just under $6 using coupons. (I love a good savings.) But, if you did the felted wool poms yourself I am sure you could save even more.
Here's how we made them....
Thanks Heidi for having me here today! I love your series and all the projects that have been here....so much inspiration and eye candy to look at. Amazing!
