DIY: Medallion Necklace
A few weekends ago, I made a fun medallion necklace out of basic supplies. I bet you already have most of the supplies you need!

Step 1: Paint both sides of your medallion with your main color choice, alternately letting each side dry (I find that 20-30 min is usually enough drying time for little projects like this).
Step 2: Using a small paintbrush, paint some of the medallion's details with a complementary color.
Step 3: Hot glue a paperclip to the back of your medallion, leave a little bit of the clip sticking up.
Steps 4&5: I added a jump-ring to my paperclip so the medallion would hang flat on the chain. This is optional but does make a big difference. If you don't have some type of little ring lying around, you can make one out of another paperclip!
String your medallion on a chain or ribbon and you are done! Easy, huh? I really like the look of gold and cream together...
