Have you ever made your own jewelry?  I have made rings and decorative bobby pins and even a necklace and I LOVE having unique customized pieces to wear.  With Mother’s  right around the corner some DIY jewelry could be the perfect gift for the mom in your life – for you to make for your mom, for you to help your kids make for their grandma, or maybe even to just tackle some for yourself!

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint 8oz - Everlasting
  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint 8oz - Treasure
  • Americana Decor Creme Wax 8oz - Clear
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Bright Salmon
  • Wooden Bangles
  • Assorted Brushes
  • Painters Tape


I recently got these wood bracelets (you can find them at and came up with a plan.  I LOVE chippy paint finishes and DecoArt chalky finish paint so figured if I loved it in my home, I should try that same look in my accessories.

First I painted 2 coats of Chalky Finish paint in Everlasting.

After it was dried I taped it off with painter’s tape to create varying stripes.  Of course you would do any kind of design that you wish.

One bracelet got painted with the Chalky Finish Treasure (teal) paint and the other got painted with the Americana Acrylic paint in Bright Salmon.

Then I lightly sanded each bracelet to give it that distressed/chippy finish and applied a coat of Chalky Finish clear wax to seal and finish it.

As you can see, this Mother’s Day will be extra special for me as we are expecting our first little one later that month.
