Flower Girl Necklaces for Fall Wedding in Canada
These were made as eco-friendly as possible. I used the old egg and baggie trick for the oxidation and I do believe they turned out fine.
The wedding is coming up soon, and the bride decided ribbons on the girls necklaces would be a sweet way to set a clasp. So, chocolate brown and eggplant ribbons, along with pretty pretty names and a few of my own touches, voila, the necklaces are complete :)
I kept the ribbons a wee long in case they would like to resize (cut back) the length. The chains are 16" so clasps can be added later if the girls wish. (pssst one of these is for an 8 month old) I was GIDDY to do these!
Hope you like. :-)
I planted these succulent flowers in a large container a couple of years ago, each fall it blooms. I have no idea what they are except they do not require too much care, which, with my semi-green thumb is a plus. The other day there were scads of bees on the flowers, it was an awesome sight to behold! (as you can see my butterfly bush from below the deck needs trimming back)
