Do you like the look of chunky jewelry that really makes a statement? Henry Happened shares a DIY necklace tutorial for a chunky, retro necklace with two strands. The painted, glossy beads in bold colors make a great handmade accessory.
DIY Necklace with Painted Beads
Paint beads of various sizes (found at JoAnn’s or local craft supplies store) with two coats of paint. Finish with a coat of Modge Podge gloss.
String beads on twine and measure the length you want. Make a knot at the end of each side to hold the beads in place, leaving about 6 inches of excess twine at the end. Repeat with second strand of beads.
Knot both strands of twine together on one side. Repeat on other side.
On one end of necklace, make a loop and knot.
On the other side of the necklace make a knot, add another bead and knot again. Cut off any excess twine.
Slip the loop over the bead and you’re done!
