DIY | Painted Rhinestone Necklace

2.08.2012
I love the idea of adding some color into my wardrobe for Spring. The easiest way to do so is with accessories. When I saw these necklaces from Tom Binns, I immediately knew what my next DIY would be. The DIY steps are simple and allow you to update a rhinestone necklace that may have been sitting in your drawer since prom. Full tutorial after the break...
Materials:
Spray Paint
Scrap Paper
Permanent Markers
Rhinestone Necklace (Similar Here and Here)
Scissors
Masking Tape

Steps:
1. Cut scrap paper to cover areas of necklace that you do not want to spraypaint. Tape paper in place.
2. Spray paint necklace to desired color. This will give a more opaque look. Repeat steps 1 and 2 for different sections of the necklace to create a fun color combination.
3. Marker in certain sections with the permanent markers to achieve a colored, yet translucent look.
4. Easy breezy!! Enjoy your SwellMayde DIY Painted Rhinestone Necklace.

So cool and colorful, and great tutorial! The result is amazing and I love how it looks with a button-down. Aren't Sharpies the best? (I just scrawled all over some shoes with a marker and can't wait to do more.)

All: Thanks for the amazing comments! Really made my morning!! :)

Julia: I had mine lying around from an old project, but originally bought it from downtown LA. I also checked Amazon, and they had quite a few. I'll add a link in the post. Hope that helps!

So cute! I've seen this sort of this, but using just one colour, I love how you played with so many different ones and the matte vs. transparent.
