DIY Sequin Collar

I finally broke down and gave in. On two things actually. The first was another half-off bag of candy corn at CVS. The second was I DIY-ed a collar. Like I pointed out here and here, there is no shortage of crafty ladies out there who have made or embellished a beautiful collar. I just couldn't help myself after I saw this pink sequin collar. I had two yards of pink sequin trim, just begging to be used. Here's the result:

Left: Pixie Market | Right: Thanks, I Made It

A quick rundown on how I made it:
1. Use plates and bowls to trace circular collar shapes onto plain paper, making a template.
2. Cut out template, and use to trace and cut out collar from scrap black fabric.
3. Use Aleene's Jewel-It Glue to stick down rows of pink sequin trim.
4. Let dry, trim off any visible fabric, and sew on two pieces of ribbon to each end to for a bow closure.

Cost: $2 (versus the $84 original)
Time: 45 minutes
Playing pretty pretty princess: priceless
