DIY Neon Lace Bib Necklaces and a Giveaway!

Neon Lace Bib Necklace

I am a dreamer when it comes to art/design projects. I envision myself only wearing clothing that I design. I believe my entire house should be decorated in original paintings that I paint myself (I have yet to paint one painting - FYI). I also want to wear only jewelry that I create.

I think this stems from my desire to be original and a trendsetter. Being a trendsetter doesn't always mean you thought of the idea yourself and have rights to the original concept; it means you can be influenced by something and then share it with others. You bring it into YOUR circle even if it already exists in other circles.

Recently, I came across this pin on Pinterest and fell in love with the necklace (actually the whole outfit is pretty fab...).

I then did a search for lace necklaces on Google, found this blog post on In Honor of Design and got inspired by how easy it is to create yourself.

I immediately went out and got my supplies and got to work.

Here is what I used to make them:

DIY Lace Necklace


1. Fabric Paints - make sure these are permanent!
2. Paint brushes - I used a medium and a small to get into the little spaces!
3. 5mm chain, jump rings and clasps - super easy to find. I got mine at Michaels
4. Needle nose pliers
5. Lace appliques - I got these from local fabric store, but ordered some new ones from this Etsy store.

Within a matter of minutes (well, hours if you count drying time & painting on both sides), I had these fab lace necklaces!

Here I am wearing one! (Like the self portrait in the car?? I swear the car parked next to me was laughing!)

Pink Lace Necklace


I am now so addicted that I want one in every color! I even have more lace in the mail and a slew of fabric paint colors ready to go (think Coral, Mint, Neon Green, Orange, etc)!

Because I am going to be necklace making machine, I had a thought to do a GIVEAWAY for one lucky reader! My first one!!!

  3. Hi girl! I pinned the necklace to my board, followed you on Twitter, FB and Bloglovin!

    I ADORE the turquoise one, and would definitely rock it on my blog in one of my outfit posts!

    I think it would look so good under a white button up and jeans to dress it up and make it more funky, or even with a dress or some little shorts for summer. Ahh so many cute ideas :)

    Crossing my fingers!
