Glitter Necklace DIY

Since it gets dark so early these days, I thought it would be fun to add a little bit of sparkle to my wardrobe! This glitter necklace is just about as easy as it gets, and the possibilities are endless. This is a basic tutorial that you can easily add your own flair to. With extra beads, knotting, a substitution of ribbon instead of cotton cord — the list goes on. Here’s how to pull it off:

You’ll Need

Approx 18″ to 24″ cotton cord
3 wooden beads (unfinished)
Mod Podge
Gold paint
Glitter
Paintbrush
Wooden skewers
Jar

1. Paint the wooden beads gold. Place each on a skewer, paintbrush, or other thin object and rest on the lip of a container to dry.

Giveaway: Bella Luna

** Update: Katy Harvey is the winner of this Frock Files giveaway! But all you lovelies are winners because Erin at LunaCielo will accept the discount code until the beginning of March. More giveaways to come! **

So as you probably know by now, I’m all about supporting independent artists on Etsy. Back on Valentine’s Day, I was feeling the need to buy myself some jewelry (because who knows what I like better than me?) and I came upon a treasure trove of goodies created by teacher turned jewelry designer Erin. Her shop, called LunaCielo, houses simple, elegant jewelry that pretty much anyone can afford. I’m telling you, if you need a pick-me-up that you won’t feel super guilty about tomorrow, you’ve gotta hit up this shop.

…Or you can leave a comment about your favorite LunaCielo piece to be entered into a drawing for one of this shop’s necklaces. You’ll get your pick of the wishbone, the silver shimmer rings, or the Carrie necklace if your name is drawn from my trusty Mason jar. Feeling lucky?

(Even if you don’t win, LunaCielo is running a special 10% discount with coupon code FROCKFILES.)

By the way, I’m not getting paid by LunaCielo, I just really love her stuff and can’t wait to share it with you.
