DIY: Neon Necklace


Neon is such a big trend for Summer this year and I've been seeing a lot of really neat necklaces online that have been just a bit out of my budget so I thought I'd give it a shot and make my own!

Supplies: 
A variety of different colored spray paint (Walmart has good colors!)
Tape
A necklace (I got mine from a thrift store for $3)
A drop cloth (fabric is better than a foam board) 

Steps: 
1. Lay out the part of the necklace you wish you spray 
2. Tape the part you don't want sprayed down
3. Put a light layer of spray paint on that part allow to dry for 10 min then add another layer if necessary (usually necessary).
4. Repeat step 2 and 3 with the other colors. 
5. Allow to dry over night. 

Tada! So simple and cute! 

Total cost: $15



I'm also eager to use the tape to create a design on different accessories (thick bangles, collar necklaces etc!) Let me know if you have any questions! If you do give it a shot post or email me a picture! I'd love to check them all out!
