Ombre {Paint Chip} Necklace

 Need a five minute jewelry makeover?  How about using paint chips?  Paint chips are crazy versatile, accessible, and FREE!  So how about making this Ombre Paint Chip Necklace?

 Literally, ombre is “having colors or tones that shade into each other.”  Ombre is HOT right now!  So I headed to my local hardware store (where the paint guy told me to take all I wanted) and picked out some colors!

{I won’t bore you all to death with pictures of how I created this necklace.  It would take me longer to write and post the pictures than it would take to make!}

 I pulled out my circle punches of various sizes (3/4 inch, 1 inch, and 1 1/2 inch) and punched them out.  Using my 1/8 inch hole punch, I stacked the circles in the order I wanted and punched through them.  Insert a jump ring and place on the chain.  It was that easy!

All you have to do is go to the hardware store!
