Hello Almost Stylish readers! My name is Kate and I blog at Scathingly Brilliant. For my guest post I thought I would share a little DIY project! This is a floral detachable collar, and it's really incredibly easy to make! You just need a decent amount of time and lots of patience to finish it! ;)

Materials needed: Felt, silk flowers, embroidery thread, a needle and pins



Step 1: Sketch out a collar template or trace a collar from a dress that you love. You only want to have half of a collar for your template. Fold your felt in half and place the collar template on the fold like I did in the photo. This way your collar will be symmetrical when you cut it out.



Step 2: Trace the pattern onto the felt and then pin around the outline so that the felt won't move when you cut it out.



Step 3: Now cut out your collar. Then take your silk flowers and pull them off of their stems.



Step 4: Begin to attach the silk flowers using embroidery thread. I pull the needle up through the hole in the center of the flower and then put it back down on one of the petals to attach it.



Continue to attach the flowers until the entire outside of the collar is filled.



Step 5: Cut another piece of felt, and attach it to the back of your collar to hide the thread. You can use felt (or fabric) glue, or sew it on.



Voila! A pretty new detachable floral collar! :)
