Interchangeable Flower Bib Necklace

My daughter and I just adore going to garage sales. 
So one Sunday afternoon we found one within walking distance from the house and picked a few good finds, this cute costume jewelry necklace was one of them.
However, my lovely little girl thought that she could use the beads to make a new necklace but alas they are glued to the string and don't come off.  So we had a sad and sorry broken necklace.. but there is hope for it yet!   First I hot glued it back together!
Then I grabbed these cute Simple fabric flowers I made!
I hot glued them onto a simple pin.
Then I had 3 interchangeable pieces to my necklace.
Pin It
A pretty multicolored flower.
A simple black and white polka dot flower.
And two white flowers to dress up any outfit (providing it matches the MINT green necklace!)
Now on a regular basis I am NOT a necklace wearing kind of girl.. but I have to say that I really LOVE this one.. I think I will wear it alot!
Oh and YES I DID change my outfit three time.. just for you guys!
