Feature Friday - Painted Wooden Bead Necklace

I pinned this necklace on pinterest quite a while ago.  The original is from HERE at Laura Parke. Well, I finally got around to making one myself.  


It was easy and fairly fast.....


.....except that those little balls kept rolling around on me while drying.


I ended up using leather string to put them on, with a sliding knot so I can wear it higher...


...or lower.  If you aren't sure how to tie a sliding knot you can watch a video on it HERE.


Head over to Laura's for the full tutorial HERE.

Thanks for reading.


- Is anyone else addicted to the dried coconut from Costco?  I LOVE it.

- Does anyone have any good Labor Day weekend plans?

- I recently found this daily deal site and I thought THIS necklace was so cute.

  6. That's super cute. I love how it turned out. I have tons of wooden beads I could use, I would just have to sand them a bit and then paint them. I hadn't seen this halfsie painted one, I love it.

  7. That costco dried coconut reeled me in just last weekend. I bought it on a whim and I'm still not sure how I feel about it...but the flavor is growing on me :) I think it would be good cut into smaller pieces and included in some home made trail mix. Do you do anything besides just snack on it plain? (I do have a large bag to consume so ideas are welcome!)

    1. Sorry! I just eat it plain. No ideas here. I was just so surprised that there was so much fiber in it and very little sugar, but it still tasted really sweet. I just can't get enough!

  9. Yours turned out great! (And ps, you are gorgeous!) I haven't tried the dried coconut yet, but I am addicted to the baked snap peas. Give those a try if you haven't already!

  10. Is it big flakes? Is it sweetened? Why do I live 45 minutes away from Costco?:/. I will need to grab some next time I trek down there!

    1. Yeah, it's just pieces, but some are thick and others are thinner. Is is sweetened. However, there's not that much sugar in it, but I think it still tastes really sweet. Sorry you're 45 minutes away! I hope you're not that far from Target, too. That would be torture :)
