DIY Neon Cuff

1

We had an old metal bracelet that had been sitting in our drawers for some time now. Since we had been staring at our spray paint for quite some time we opted to spray the bracelet with a pretty blue tone. Once it had dried overnight, we spruced it up with neon in hopes of creating our go to summer piece.

We applied a small amount of Gem Tac glue on the back of each rhinestone one at a time.

We gently placed each rhinestone down onto the cuff adding a small amount of pressure. DSC_0100

We continued to do this until we came up with a unique and one of a kind pattern for our cuff.
