Do you ever have pieces of inexpensive jewelry where you look at them and say, "I wonder if I could make this cuter?" I often buy cheaper jewelry and think "I am sure 1,000 other women have this exact same piece of jewelry now." Well, here is one quick solution to fix both problems..you can make it cute AND have a totally unique piece to wear!
A few weeks ago, I bought a few of these owl necklaces from Pick Your Plum to give as gifts. When I got them, I loved them. You can see from the before, they are super cute necklaces, but then I thought, I want to paint one and see what it looks like...so that is exactly what I did.
I just got out some acrylic paints that I had on hand and went to town. I love how it turned out..so bright and cheery and in one of my favorite color palettes right now.
It took me about 20 minutes to paint it and about 10 more to dry. I know this isn't for all jewelry, but a fun way to take an item that is cheaper and not so unique and turn it around to something really fun to wear.
I even thought how fun this would be to do as a craft night. Imagine getting 10 women together and all painting at the same time and then seeing how different they all are because of color preferences and then how you place the color on it as well! Wouldn't that be fun?!
SO I have a necklace leftover..does anyone want to give it a try?
To win a blank owl to paint, simply leave a comment and let me know what color combination YOU would use!
