DIY Leather Peter Pan Collar or Necklace

I know it seems like everyone has already done some sort of collar DIY {and I’ve done a few collar DIYs as well as an embellished collar diy myself} however, I kind of wanted a leather collar necklace and didn’t want to buy one. So obviously, I decided to DIY my own and document it to share with you all because, that’s what I do 😉 It’s really very easy actually and the leather gives the sweet & girlie Peter Pan shape a bit of edginess… which I always like. It’s very minimal, with the pinked round edges as its only design feature, but you can add studs or a little bling or slip a ribboned bow in the center if you wish as I have demonstrated above.

What You’ll Need…

* Leather… medium weight, if all you have is thin leather, glue two sides together to make it thicker. You need the weight so it will stay put and keep its shape.
* Peter Pan Collar Pattern – which you can eyeball and draw yourself, use an existing blouse with a peter pan collar as a guide or – download my Peter Pan Collar Pattern here. {Psst! Just cut out one side of the pattern, & flip it to use for the opposite pattern}
* Scissors & Pinking Shears
* Sharpie Paint pen {or anything that will show up on your leather} If you’re using raw leather, any pen will do.
* Bead Reamer {or leather hole punch}
* Jump Rings – I used oval rings for this project
* Lobster Clasp

* Connect a jump ring and your lobster hook to one side… and a single jump ring to the other side. * If you’d like to be able to wear it longer, add a bit of chain on one side for adjustments.
