Polka Dot Wooden Beads Necklace


Polka dots are one of my favorite trends.  I hope that they don’t go anywhere and that they are cool and stylish for a long time.  I just love them!  I love them so much that I wanted to make a fun necklace that was polka dot.  And so I did.  It was so easy to make, I should make more in different colors.

This is how I made it:
I took wood beads in two different sizes.

I spray painted them green.

Using my Cricut, I cut out all the little polka dots out of vinyl and put them on the beads.

To make sure the vinyl stays on, I sprayed them with an acrylic glaze.

I put the beads onto some white knit fabric.

And that’s it!  So much fun, I love it!

I love that I made the fabric longer, so I can make it a long or short necklace.
