Neon Necklace made of BEANS!

When was the last time you made art by arranging and gluing down beans?  Kindergarten?  Perhaps early elementary school?  Well, Rinchen from High on DIY is about to blow your mind and make you realize that you actually haven’t outgrown bean crafting.  This fabulous statement necklace is constructed from black-eyed peas, which she dressed up with a bit of bright paint.  Worried that stringing them will be difficult?  Never fear!  Rinchen’s technique is super simple, with no needle required!  [how to make a neon necklace out of beans]
