Acrylic Paint in two different colors (I picked turquoise and black)
Ribbon or any kind of string that you would like to use for the actual “necklace”
Wooden balls ( you can get them at the craft store in different sizes)
Bamboo skewers ( kind you use for cooking)
Slide a ball onto the skewer..
Let dry, I took a pack of cards and set it on top of the skewer
to allow the stick to hang off of the side of the table.
Next….the magic ingredient!!
Wait for it……
Crackle nail polish!
Because I sell AVON, I used the Avon Mosaic Effects Polish I already had on hand
but any brand will do!
Paint the entire ball in a thick layer of the crackle nail polish…
I added two more beads that I put a free hand design on as well,
but you could also feel free to leave those solid.
Once they are dry, thread them up onto either a ribbon
or leather string or twine,
whatever your heart desires!
The finished product!
Once I made this I realized that I didn’t care for the ribbon as a necklace
( sometimes you will have that),
so I will definitely be changing it to probably a black leather string instead.
But that is the beauty of this, you could change it up a millon times to suit your mood!
You could also paint the balls white and do a cobalt blue crackle over it,
(I love blue and white together)
or even color block it!
Above all have a good time with it, and get creative!
