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. So I decided to channel this love of neon and shapes into the funnest statement necklace that’s ever graced my neck. And it was SO easy to make. I’ll show you how.
- 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.
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. You can also find us on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, andTwitter!
