3. Spread out scrap paper out side and select your spray paint colors. Lay down the washers and apply even coats of spray paint (could be up to four coats, depending on opacity). Let dry.

5. Use E-6000 to glue each of the washers together, overlapping you wish.
6. Leave glue to "set up" overnight
7. Grab the ribbon you would like to use as the top part of the necklace and loop it through the hole of the top most washer, on both sides.
