This first week of December is always crazy – lots of festivals, online orders and gifts to make for friends. Instead of spending a lot of money on new supplies, I combed through my stash to find what I had a lot of. I came across a plastic bin full of little wood pieces. I immediately thought of painting, glueing and glittering them into necklaces and bracelets. I love how they turned out! Here’s is my tutorial so you can do it too, they make great little gifts to pass out to friends and family!
Assorted small wood pieces
Tulip Soft Paints, brushes
Tulip Fashion Glitter
Aleene’s Tacky Glue
Aleene’s Paper Glaze
Paint all the wood pieces, let dry.
Use the Tacky Glue to glue together the pieces. Mix and match contrasting colors!
They looked pretty boring to me, so I amped it up by coating them with Paper Glaze and glitter!
Now it’s time to drill holes so you can add jewelry chin and closures.
I used cactus because I live in Arizona – it’s appropriate!
I also glued the pieces to leather cuffs!
Here are my finished pieces, I’m so excited to to share and even sell these! They’re so colorful and helped me clean my stash in my supply cabinet!
