When I saw this tutorial on A Beautiful Mess, I thought it would be fun to try. But, I was worried it would look too homemade or childish for me to wear. Lula loves wearing dress up necklaces, so I thought it would be the perfect little project to make for her. It’s cute enough that she can wear it “for real” and look adorable.
It’s so super easy. I read the tutorial on A Beautiful Mess and then made my own modifications!
First, I bought some large wooden beads at the craft store along with some acrylic paint (the really cheapy kind!) and some acrylic gloss varnish. I put a little piece of tape down for each bead to hold in place while I painted them with a sponge brush.
