Painted Bead Necklace

This DIY necklace is super simple and is another “quick step project” as I like to call it. This necklace came to be, because I had some remnant materials lying around and thought it would be a cute piece to update my spring wardrobe.

If you want to host a crafternoon, this would be a perfect craft to include because it uses only a few materials and doesn’t take any specific skills. And everyone loves a little jewelry.

Materials:

  • Paint (I used chalk paint)
  • Paintbrush
  • Wooden beads
  • Leather cord or twine
  •  Newspaper or wax paper (to keep your workspace clean)

Directions:

1. Paint your wooden beads and let dry completely. (If needed add a second coat)

2. Cut cord to desired length and string on beads.

3. Tie cord into a pretty knot or bow and wear your pretty necklace.

This project lends itself to customizations. Use any color combinations or use different sized beads for a gradient look. Again, I just used materials I had laying around my home and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

This project would also be fun to do at a little girl or tweens birthday party. It’s inexpensive, but you leave with an adorable takeaway.

Thanks for reading! xo

  1. Aww, that’s super cute! I love the ide of having it be a craft for the girls to do at a birthday party!
    That paint color (and the way it’s chalky) makes me think of robins’ eggs, which is perfect for Spring. 😀
