Skills Required: Beginner. Even if you’ve never crafted before, you can make this project. You’ll be painting beads and stringing them onto a necklace.
Recently I was wandering the aisles of the grocery store and found myself so inspired by the water play/pool section. It’s the funnest section of the store, you guys. All the neon!
All the fun shapes of buckets and shovels and pool toys and floaties! It makes me happy. Just so bright and colorful.
So I decided to channel this love of neon and fun shapes into the cutest statement necklace that’s ever graced my neck. And it was SO easy to make this fashion craft. I’ll show you how.
DIY Statement Necklace
- Unfinished beads (I found mine on Etsy)
1. I wanted my beads to have a high contrast against the paint so I decided to stain my beads before painting them. I used a basic gel stain that you can find amongst your craft paints at your craft supply store and just slapped it on the beads.
2. Once the stain is dry paint your beads! I used tape to make straight lines and give the beads a dipped effect.
3. Let beads dry!
4. String your beads and add any clasps or tie to secure and you’re DONE!
This neon statement necklace is SO fun, right? And just think of the color + shape possibilities! I’m obsessed.
This sucker is going to make a big impact in your accessory drawer. Now get to crafting! And be sure to come visit my sister and me as we blog about style, food, and the things we love over at The Pretty Life Girls.
