Peter Pan Collar Necklace D.I.Y.

Leather collar 1Hi friends! Today Kinsey is here to show you how to make your very own leather Peter Pan collar necklace. It's super easy, requires no sewing and looks like a cute collar when paired with a simple top! 
Leather collar 21. Supplies: Thin leather (for a vegan option, try high quality faux leather), jewelry chain and jump rings, ribbon, scissors, jewelry pliers, paper. 2. First, make paper patterns for your collar. You don't want to accidentally ruin your leather, so use your pattern to find the pefect fit. You want to wear a top that you would really wear the necklace with to make sure it fits your neck and the top of the blouse, creating the appearance of a real collar!  2. Once you've got the right shape, lay your leather right side down and cut out your pattern. Tip: If your leather has wrinkles or creases, you can iron it by facing the leather down and putting a cotton fabric on top  3. Next, punch a hole in the top corners of each collar. 4. Then, attach the collars by putting the ribbon through the two inside corners and tie a simple knot. 5. Last, you'll attach the chain onto each end of the collars to make it an easy, adjustable necklace.
Leather collar 3I tried two slightly different patterns, this (above) pattern is slightly larger and more round. I like this pattern because it will fit perfectly with many different tops! 
Leather collar 4For this smaller style, I painted a "trim" around the border with Matha Stewart craft paint. I love the look of the edge because it shows off the shape of the collar a little bit better! Have fun wearing your new faux Peter Pan collar! Thanks Kinsey for this fun idea! xo. elsie

  • I always find lots of leather scraps in thrift markets, I know what I can do with them now! <3

  • That is so insanely cute. Peter Pan colors make everything look so classic and feminine but this one (because it’s leather?) adds a little something tomboyish!

    Love. Pinned.

  • I’m so obsessed with Peter Pan collars! For the past 3-4 years. For myself and my 7 year old daughter, lol. I love Olive Juice Kids for my daughter, as they have TONS of Peter Pan collared items, but I can rarely find them for myself.

  • How cute!! I just did a DIY, I’d love for you to stop by 🙂

  • You are a mind reader! Since I have my hair grey now I wanted to make some collars for some dresses that are not my color anymore (one is from Red Velvet and it is my favorite dress!).
    I can’t wait to use your instructions and make one out of fushia velvet with maybe a lime green tie. Thank you so much.
    I LOVE your ideas! xo J

  • That is so super cute!
    If only we had more craft supplies for sale over here, I would get up and make this immediately!!!


  • Wow that’s great and no sewing machine means that i can do it too! Thanks sweetie!!

    (New blog needing some love and support:

  • love peter pan collars! have you seen the ones which were made by Karl Lagerfeld?
