Frugal Friday - Dollar Store Necklaces

We thought we'd start a new feature here at G*Rated called Frugal Fridays where we will share with you some of our favorite cheap finds, ways to save money, or cute crafts for little cost.  Cuz we could all stand to save a little money here and there, right? :)



I found these cute necklaces at the 99 cent store and totally fell in love with them.  I like that they are chunky but totally simple.  Seriously, how can you go wrong for a buck?  But there wasn't a huge selection of colors to choose from.  So I bought a bunch of them and decided to spray paint them in the colors I wanted.

First I taped off the chains and gave them a good coat of paint.
 

Then I let them dry in the sun and they came out perfectly!  I am so happy with how they turned out and now I can make one in any color I want.








For this one I used Valspar Exotic Sea.  It is a BEAUTIFUL turquoise color!









This one was done in Valspar Cut Ruby.  It is a bright, bold red and I love it!
