Quick and easy 4th necklace

Our town's big 4th of July fireworks celebration takes place on the 3rd. So as I was getting ready this morning I made sure to put on my Red, White and Blue...except I didn't have a very cute outfit. I found my old strand of red pearls hiding in the back of my jewelry drawer. Even with the red pearls on top of my white shirt I still didn't look very festive. This looked the the perfect opportunity to craft!!

The outcome was pretty simple. I'm sure it could have been a bit more embellished (and maybe blinged)...but not bad for my 30 minute time slot. The three flowers are independent of each other. In fact, the red flower is a pin I had made last week. The little blue Yo-yos I whipped up today. Each flower is sewed on with thread {which could be removed later}. I did tack the three together with one stitch so that they didn't spin around.

I hope this inspired you to create something patriotic.
