DIY Painted Necklace Anthropologie Hack by Julia Walck

I was in an Anthropologie last week and saw this necklace. I swooned over it but then saw the pricetag. $158?! Come on Anthro... I love you but that's a bit much. 

I remembered that had someone gifted me a similar bib necklace that was gold and silver. I instantly thought, "I can make that!" So I did.

SUPPLIES: 

  • gold necklace (some suggestions below)
  • 2 colors of acrylic paint, one slightly darker than the other
  • gold paint pen or gold acrylic paint
  • paint brush(es)

NECKLACE OPTIONS: 

  1. Paddle Necklace, $16.80
  2. Spike Statement Necklace, $8.90
  3. Stick Bib Necklace, $15.40

HOW TO DIY: 

  • Put a paper towel under the necklace
     
  • Take your lighter paint color and paint the tips of the the necklace, going a little over halfway up.
     
  • Dabble the darker color on top of the lighter color. Don't worry, you can get messy! It actually adds more style if you do.
     
  •  Draw little circles/scribbles with your gold pen or paint.
     
  • Let dry and then wear it out for a night on the town! 

Make Every Day Haturday by Julia Walck

I just wrapped up a project I've been working on for most of the month: I wore a different hat every day for 27 days straight and NO ONE NOTICED!

Yes I own 27 hats. 28 if you count my hattoo. (I don't have a problem!!!) I also have a hashtag for myself on Instagram you can take a peek at

Here's an individual breakdown day by day.
*Note: If you're on a phone you've got a bit of scrolling to do!

It's a bit relieving to not take a photo every day anymore, but I did like watching the progression over the span of a month. Coming up with a completely new outfit each day and not repeating anything except for my smile was a fun challenge.

All in all, I guess if I got anything out of this project it's 27 new profile photos.
