As seen on The Blush this is a DIY collar (a huge trend at the moment!) that you can tailor (literally!) to your personality. I had so much fun with my project, I made two — one for my more artistic and creative side and another for the more vintage, polished girl feel. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
Step 1: Cut out pattern and trace onto back of leather/suede scrap with a Sharpie.
Step 2: Cut the leather/suede and flip over to right side.
Step 3: Paint each collar piece as desired. In this look, I went with a more demure look with gold polka dots on white background. For my “wild” look, you will see I went for a more fun, crazy, artsy look.
Step 4: Complete look and let dry.
Step 5: Cut ribbon 1 1/2″ in the middle, and 8/10″ for each of the ends. Glue and let dry. You can always cut off ends a little more if too long.
It’s the perfect accessory to make that old outfit you love new again!
And just to keep the creative winds going, here is one a little more on the wild side! It’s the exact same concept, but I used another color for background and went a little dramatic with the colors!
