DIY Neon Chain Bracelet {We're Bringing Back the 80's!}

Freeze frame! Total 80's flashback here today with this DIY neon bracelet. Hard to believe but fluorescent is back in a BIG way this spring. Although intrigued I am definately not one who could pull off alot of neon. Besides I like to blend in. It's easier to eavesdrop on people out in public when your not dressed like a bright construction cone. But I do like the idea of adding a small pop of color to freshen things up a bit and besides a hair scrunchy {in a side pony of course!} the only other best way to do this is with jewelry. This little DIY is simple & quick.

Now brighten that puppy up with some neon colored spray paint. I used Olive Bright which I found at my local Michael's but you can also purchase here.

You may have to spray a few coats {allowing dry time between each one} in order to get the full chain to cover with color.


See simple & inexpensive...so no explaining to the hubby why you wasted moolah on something you only wore for a few short months because we all know how quickly these trends come & go.

With that being said I'm thinking about bringing back the Spin Art t-shirts.
Do you remember those? When I was in elementary school Spin Art parties were the place to be!
Sooo....since all these trends from the 80's {colored jeans, neon, etc..}are making a comeback {Don't call it a comeback. Name that song.... anyone? Anyone?}I'm going to revive these puffy paint splattered shirts.
I'm thinking casual Fridays.


If you could bring back any trend from the 80's what would it be?
