Geometric wood bead necklace

I love the geometric/fractal trend, as well as wooden crafts, so it was inevitable that I would end up doing a craft including both. I ordered these wooden beads hoping I would get them in time for my Longest Day Craft Open House but of course they showed up a few days after. Isn’t that the way? :) Nonetheless, I broke these open this week, and finished my friends long overdue birthday present. I painted a variety of colors so she can make whatever combination she likes! :) (This one is for you Panda!)




Depending on how many beads you paint this DIY should take you under 30 minutes.


Step 1:

Painting the beads is the fun part. :) You can paint them partially or full. The more beads you paint, the more combos of this necklace you can create! Make a combo for every outfit!

To paint the beads easily, slip a bead on the end of a skewer. Once you have your desired paint job complete, place the skewer in an upright position, and let it dry. I find that most craft paints you don’t need more than 1 coat, but some colors (like the dark ones) need 2 coats.

Step 2:

Cut your ball chain to the length you desire. Then attach your chain connector to one end of the chain.

Step 3:
