DIY to Try: Neon Necklace

Processed with MoldivI have an obsession with neon. Why is this worth mentioning? Well, coming from the girl who is attracted to all shades of white, black and gray, my attraction to neon is just weird. But lately, I’ve been really, really into color. And when it comes to color, go big or go home, right?

I’ve scoured the internet for neon pieces, but at the end of the day, didn’t want to shell out the cash for something so trendy. Instead, I grabbed a bottle of spray paint and an old rhinestone necklace, and got to work. Here’s what you need to recreate the neon trend at home:

  • Rhinestone necklace (And yes, sadly a stone is missing. I have since fixed the issue, no worries!)
  • White spray paint (Optional, but I’ve found it makes the neon appear brighter)
  • Neon spray paint

Step 1: Lay your necklace flat on a surface of your choice (I used a paper bag) and lightly spray your white spray paint until it’s evenly coated. Make sure you allow time to dry between coats (I am notoriously impatient, so this is always the hardest part for me). neon necklace3

Step 2: After your coat of white paint has dried, lightly spray the neon spray paint until the necklace is evenly coated. Again, make sure you allow time to dry between coats.neon necklace4
