We're loving bright pops of color this season! In this next D.I.Y. project you'll learn to make a trendy bauble necklace in any colors you choose! These necklaces are easy to wear with casual and dressy outfits. Enjoy…
Supplies Needed: Craft Paint (choose any colors you fancy! We went with mint, grey, pumpkin and neon pink), Gloss We used DecoArt Triple Thick Gloss Glaze as our top coat (this glaze is our secret weapon for giving these beads a polished look!), raw wood beads, leather cord or chain (long enough to slip over your head) and scissors. 1. Paint your beads with two coats of paint. Allow beads to dry between each coat. 2. After the paint has dried, Use the gloss to add an extra coat of shine to your beads. 3. String the beads. We had a difficult time threading the leather cord through the beads, so we added a little tape to the end of the cord to make it more sturdy for treading. Super simple, no? Best part is, you can make necklaces for you and your friends in an afternoon!
Choose colors that compliment your personality and wardrobe! I think I need a yellow necklace too…. xo. elsie

Great project for 2 year olds! 😛
These are beautiful.
I made and posted something similar on my blog almost two months ago.
I used modelling clay instead of wooden pearls.
I love yours! 🙂
I absolutely adore these. Do you have any tips for how to paint the beads on all sides? Do you do one coat and then turn them for the other coat? Any tips for how to let them dry (and I guess same goes for putting on the gloss coat)?
I wonder how much the natural beads will be to buy in the UK and if this is practical to make them as you can buy them quite cheap ready made but it is not match for your own colours and sizes! I think a blog post idea may have just arrived.
Silly and obvious question perhaps, but how do you paint the beads and let them dry without the color smudging off/the paint sticking?
Gorgeous DIY, guys.
And Emma, you make everything look so beautiful.
