{ i spy a diy - 5 flower necklace }

My super stylish mama friend, Kristy, was wearing the most darling, yellow flower necklace one day a few weeks back.  She's a crafty kinda gal, so I suspected she'd made it herself, and it turns out, I was right.  Hers turned out so dang adorable, that I wanted to make my own- and pronto! Kristy turned me on to the cuteness that is Little Miss Momma, and her adorable flower necklace tutorial.     

Kristy had the awesome idea to have a get together at her place with a bunch of us gals so that we could each whip up one of these beauties.  Check out the beautiful, delicious spread that was waiting at her house when we all arrived.  Those are pumpkin cannolis, people.  Yowza.  Delish!

We had a lovely evening chatting, sipping, petal-pinching, snacking, and gluing the night away.  About a gazillion fabric circle cut-outs and a few burned fingers later, we all had these pretties to take home.
Impossible to pick a favorite!

And here we are modeling our projects {that's Kristy, the hostess with the mostess, in the middle}.  It was such a fun time, and I can't wait until our next crafty girls' night!

Do you do gals have crafty get togethers like these?  What kind of fun projects have you made?
