Note to the seamstress (that’s you!): No need to include all of the different types of flowers in your necklace—unless you’re just feeling super crafty. Found one or two flower designs that you have really gotten the hang of? You can absolutely create a beautiful masterpiece using just a couple of different types of flowers. We’re just laying out all of the options before we assemble our necklace. Happy crafting!
