DIY: Simple Neon Necklace

Neon is every where lately. Thank goodness stirrup pants aren't. Those definately should never come back. To me, one of the greatesttestesttest things about this trend right now is the mix of wood & neon. This is proven by the fact that I have visited the Wind & Willow Home store 1,999 times in the past month....okay just kidding it was in the past week.
Then the other day I spotted these wood beaded necklaces at JcPenney's and I couldn't stop thinking about them way after I left. I mean, of course, in between thinking about how to cure world hunger and all.

I quickly came to the realization that I needed some neon wood in my life; a personal massuese & a maid wouldn't be bad either but they don't sell those at Hobby Lobby.....
but they do sell wooden beads!
I brought home a few bags, painted a selected number of the beads a lovely turquoise color, allowed them to dry. & then strung them on some clear necklace fish wire.

Seriously, one of the simplest projects ever & I just lurvvee how it came out.
Plus, since I already had the paint & fish wire at home I was able to make it for half the price compared to the one at the store. Genius I know....I may just be able to cure world hunger after all.
 Have you added any neon to your wardrobe this season?
Do you still own stirrups? Because if you do we can totally send them to a firey grave over a camp fire singing kumaya.
I promise it would make the world a better place.

Oh my word! Isn't it crazy how the trends come back? We were just talking about neon from the 80s and how it is back big time! And no I do not have any stirrups left! :)
