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?!

  • 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!
