okay so my mom is pretty much in love with home depot, and we go there a couple times a week and i've had my eye on some chain there for a long time, but for some reason i never bought any. well yesterday i finally bought some of the chain (at only .44 CENTS PER FOOT) and decided to make me some necklaces.
so i bought about six feet for two necklaces because i like my necklaces real long. the chain was already painted white, but i wanted a red strand so i bought some red spray paint.
this project only took about an hour (it would have taken less if it didn't take so long for spray paint to completely dry) and i'm very happy with the result. i think i remember seeing some necklaces like these in urban outfitters a long time ago, where they sold for around twenty dollars. including the little clasp mine cost less than two dollars.
