DIY Wooden Cube Necklace Step 1

Step 1: wooden cubes painting process

Take a wooden cube and place a strip of tape across the cube at a diagonal. Take your paintbrush and paint the empty space. You probably need to go over with the paint 2-3 times in order to get a nice coat. Wait about 10 minutes for the paint to fully dry and once it has dried peel off the tape. Take another cube and paint one side any color of your choice.

Pick one of the cubes to create a design on and take a thin paint brush and carefully use the tip of the brush to create a dash pattern. You can also paint the opposite side of the cube if you prefer to have a necklace with versatile pendant.
