DIY Necklace with Painted Beads

Posted by on


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.

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Knot both strands of twine together on one side. Repeat on other side.

Step 4

On one end of necklace, make a loop and knot.

Step 5

On the other side of the necklace make a knot, add another bead and knot again. Cut off any excess twine.

Step 6

Slip the loop over the bead and you’re done!
