Recycled Paper Anthro Rosette Necklace

by Johnnie Collier

Anthropologie Inspired Rosette Necklace

I love paper, I love rosettes, and I love anthro knock offs.  Doing the happy crafter dance right now.  Yesterday I showed you a recycled magazine page cross I made from by folding the heck out of magazine pages and rolling them into coils.  Since then, I have thought of a ridiculous amount of things I want to do with these.  Today’s project is this  Anthropologie inspired rosette necklace, sure to dazzle and impress.  WAY cheaper than the real thing, wouldn’t you say?!

Recycled Paper Jewelry

Instructions:

  • To see how the coils are made, read this post.
  • Once you have your coils, figure out your design and glue them together accordingly using a hot glue gun, with a dab of glue where the coils contact one another.  I highly recommend glossy accents as your glue for making the coils, as I explain in the above link, but for joining them together, glue gun works best.
  • Now that the coils are connected,  it is time to seal the piece with Mod Podge or Minwax Polycrylic.  I apply two layers, allowing dry time in between.
  • Attach your favorite chain, then enjoy!

I’m brand new to this crafty stuff, but became very excited when I ran across your blog! Thanks for the great ideas!
Silly question: How is the chain attached to the coils??
Thanks! Be blessed!
