DIY Removable “Peter-Pan” Collar

Decorative, removable “Peter Pan” collars are a pretty big deal right now.  And with places like J.Crew selling them for kids….upwards of $40.I thought I should probably try my hand at making one and spending…$0 instead.  Like all things that you make for kids it’s easier to make a Peter Pan collar for them, than for yourself.  You can make them more whimsical, cutesy, and themed than you’d probably want for yourself.  However, you could absolutely apply this same idea to an adult sized Peter Pan collar; you’ll just want to make it more finished–nicer fabric, embellishments, and finishes.

But for the kiddos…here’s all you need:

I used plastic cabochon’s in tear drop shapes and a random cupcake one that I’d ordered from Etsy a while back for pennies.  Why did I order them from Etsy?  Who knows?  I have an Etsy addiction and they were cute.  And now I’m glad I have them!  But beads, flat backed jewel pieces, rhinestones from old jewelry, feathers, or even different colored pieces of fabric would work to make your collars look amazing!
