Colorful DIY Necklaces and Earrings

Summer calls for fun & colorful statement necklaces and earrings! These are the perfect style for a girls night out, date night or just a fun day out and about. Not only are these super simple to make but the color combos and options are endless. I literally wanted to make one for all my friends! There is just something about getting all dressed up and adding that final piece of jewelry to make it all come together and complete the look! Or is that just me I wonder?!

When I came across these acrylic disks in the jewelry isle I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.

INSTRUCTIONS for EARRINGS:

Begin by taping your beads to a hard surface, I used 2″ painters tape all across them, then start drilling your acrylic bead with a 1/8 drill bit. You will want to make sure your bead is secure when drilling.

Once you have drilled your bead you will want to remove the tape and insert your earring hook onto your acrylic disk and add your gold heart charm.

That’s it! Not only are these simple to make but I love the versatility in them! The possibilities of colors and charms are endless!

INSTRUCTIONS for NECKLACE:

Begin by taping your bead to a hard surface then start drilling your acrylic bead with a 1/8 drill bit. You will want to make sure your bead is secure when drilling.

Once you have drilled your bead, that will be at the top, you will want to remove the tape and insert your gold hoop and attach the chain and close the hoop with your needle nose pliers. Then glue the other discs onto the top bead.

That’s it! Not only is this simple to make but I love the versatility in them! The possibilities of colors and charms are endless!
