DIY | Fluorescent Flowers

Check out the full outfit you see above, here!

I mentioned last week that I’ve done the neon necklace update before, but couldn’t resist using a similar technique to save this old favorite from the giveaway pile by giving it new life.

Keep reading for the easy 1-2-3 below, and let me know if you try it out for yourself!

As is the case with most of my DIY projects, the steps are shamefully simple, and the supplies include just two things: the jewelry you’d like to transform and a can of the brightest color of spray paint that you can find.  I used a bottle of Krylon Indoor/Outdoor that I found at the corner hardware store, but this little mini-can would do the job just fine!

Too busy to make one of these puppies for yourself?  Here’s a super similar style available at Bauble Bar for those who would rather shop than spray paint!

    Nothing like a good spray paint makeover! Love the pink under your denim collar.

    Great makeover! The hot pink looks great with your skin tone, and really pops with the neutrals :)

    I’ve tried spray painting a necklace and the smell when I wore it was a bit overwhelming. Did you let it air out for a few days? That might have been my mistake.

      Oooh, I can definitely see the smell being a bit of a (literal) headache… I did let mine dry for several hours on the paper, and then didn’t wear it for nearly a week. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t notice the smell? I’d always recommend doing the spray-painting part outside, as well. :)
