I’m back from my little Asheville getaway. It was full of great meals and even better company. I’m seriously blessed with good friends. Today I wanted to share a simple and cheap way to make your own bauble necklaces. I’m a big fan of fun, chunky beaded necklaces (though I do love dainty ones to, like this rose gold heart necklace the Mr. got me for Valentine’s Day) but I really hate to pay a ton of money for something I’m not going to wear all the time so I decided to DIY it.

• Big wooden beads
Craft paint
• Paint brush
• Thin chain or leather (long enough to fit over your head)

1. Paint the wooden beads with a thin coat of paint. Allow them to dry completely (usually around an hour is best) then add another coat. I painted three coats. 2. String the painted wooden beads along your chain or thin leather necklace. If you’re using leather just tie the ends in a knot and you’re ready to wear them!

I painted the wooden beads a metallic rose gold, pink, and bright pink so I can swap out the colors/chains easily. I love that I can now have a perfectly coordinating necklace in no time and it only cost a couple dollars to make.
