DIY Wooden Bead Necklace

What you will need:
  • Natural Wooden Beads – I used 25mm size
  • Gold Metallic Spray Paint
  • Clear Acrylic Coating (optional)
  • 2 Feet of very thin ribbon (cut to length you want) or any chain of your choice
As I was in one of my creative moods, I wanted to make something I could wear. I have been getting into the minimalist style recently and have been wanting to make a simple wooden bead necklace. I headed to Hobby Lobby and picked up some generic wooden beads (almost any craft store you go to will have these) and a roll of thin white ribbon.  I grabbed my favorite gold spray paint (Rust-Oleum Bright Coat Metallic Finish in Gold) and a paper plate. I spray painted one side of 3 beads, waited for them to dry, and then flipped them over and spray painted the other side. I did two coats of this and finished with a single layer of Krylon’s Crystal Clear Acrylic Coating.


When I put my beads on my ribbon (or chain) I put two unpainted beads, then the three painted beads, and then two more unpainted beads. I then tied the ribbon in a knot so that it would not fall off easily when I was wearing it.


This was the result. A perfect pairing to almost any outfit.
