DIY Neon Necklace Statement Piece

I’ve always been a crafter but over the years, I definitely haven’t dedicated as much time to “creating” as I should. Michael’s, pretty much the best craft store ever, approached me with a challenge to create a summer statement piece and naturally, I was thrilled to take them up on the offer. Confession: I’ve been dying to make this amazing neon statement necklace that my DIY friend Kristen created a few weeks back. Ok, so my statement piece wasn’t exactly my idea but nonetheless, I’m still super excited about it and totally obsessed with my creation (inspiration above).

Kristen got her necklace at Forever21 but I actually already had an old rhinestone necklace that I bought for Halloween and my Moulin Rouge Christina A. costume. I then used Michael’s CraftSmart Acrylic Paint Neon Paint Pot to paint each individual rhinestone, which gave me the best neon colors and since I didn’t really need much paint to cover each rhinestone, the little pots were the perfect size to purchase.

BONUS! Michael’s has a great online coupon, valid starting July 3! Get it HERE.

The result!

 

FTC Disclosure: Michael’s provided me with a $50 gift card to purchase any items I needed to complete my statement piece but all opinions are my own.
