DIY: Painted Wooden Necklace
A simple project with unlimited possibilities in three easy steps!
- jewelry clasps
- ten wooden beads with pre-drilled holes ( I used 1" beads, but there are various options)
- paint (I used Martha Stewart paints in these colors: Tartan Red, Beach Glass, Deep Sea)
- painters tape
STEP 1: Eyeball the center of your bead and use the painters tape to wrap the bead horizontally,
making sure the ends meet to allow half of the bead to be exposed for painting.
STEP 2: Paint the exposed part of your bead. I did three coats to ensure coverage all the way
around and let the beads dry dry thoroughly for 10 minutes before removing the tape.
STEP 3: Now it's time to string the beads. Line them up in the order you want them on your necklace and begin stringing, making sure the two colored ends meet each other. Add the clasps to the ends of the cording, clasp, and voila, a colorful necklace in less than half an hour!
