DIY: Neon Necklace

I’m so excited about  Britney Spear’s new album Femme Fatale. I have a feeling it’s going to be my soundtrack to my Summer, but I digress… Neon is one of the hottest trends of the Summer. It’s bright, it’s electric, it’s fun and Britney is rockin’ this amazing Tom Binns neon yellow necklace in her Hold It Against Me Video.

This season Tom Binns (one o my absolute favorite jewelry designers) has tons of neon necklaces, but let’s be honest I spent most of my money on the TB Safety Binns Cuff so spending 2,000+ on the TB Ethno necklace is out of the question if I planned on paying rent!

Materials: A Rhinestone Statement Necklace, Neon Paint, Paintbrush

I purchased this necklace from Forever 21. They always have great statement necklaces and accessories.

Wet Paint!

All the pretty colors!

DIY Tip: Once your paint is dry, add a coat of clear nail polish to make your necklace shine!

LOL everytime I wear neon I feel the need to wear my hipster glasses. I actually stole these from my Mom. RIGHT… She didn’t need them!

  10. Did you have to take the stones out, or do you paint them while they are still on the necklace? Great idea!
