Get crafty! Join us TOMORROW at the Roxy Beach House at the Quiksilver Pro, NY where we will be hosting a DIY beading and feather necklace station and splatter painting sunglasses all week long!
Here are our ‘Quik’ steps for making a fashionable feathered masterpiece:
What you’ll need: feathers, Roxy beads (or what you have on hand will work!), colorful tape & suede string!
JUST BEAD IT!
Step 1: Pick it! Pick out all your different beads and string colors (mix & match if you’d like…Or try color blocking for a vibrant change!)
Step 2: Cut it! Cut 3 strings to your desired length.
Step 3: Knot it! Knot your three strings together (leave a little extra on the end for your feathered flare later on!)

Step 4: Tape it! Tape the strings down to the table for easy braiding & DIY’ing.
Step 5: Braid it! Braid the strings together and remember to have your beads on-hand. This is when you can begin to make your creation truly you! Slide your beads onto 1 string at a time and continue braiding. Stack them, spread them out, mix it up, & make it fun!
Step 6: Knot it! Knot the end of your braid (remember to leave a little bit of length at the end again)
Step 7: Feather it! Pick some colorful feathers to give your necklace a wispy Native American inspired look!
Step 8: Tape it! After you’ve selected your various feathers use a piece of tape to secure your feathers to the strings of suede on each end.
Step 9: WEAR IT! Wear your newest & stylish DIY creation!
ROXY SPLATTER PAINT SUNGLASSES
Roxy Splatter paint sunglasses is another great DIY activity we have going on down at the Roxy Beach House! It’s not only an enjoyable beach activity, but it protects your eyes from the sun too! Guess what else….it’s pretty simple!
Catch some ‘Rays’ & our 5 easy steps here:
All you need: acrylic paint (the brighter, the better!), Roxy sunnies & a small spray bottle
Step 1: Pick it! Pick out a color, or two, or three that you’d like to use on your new sunglasses.
Step 1: Fill it! Fill the small spray bottles with some colorful acrylic paint.
Step 2: Cover it! Cover the lenses to prep for the splatter fun that comes next.
Step 3: Spray it! Spray the sides of your sunglasses to desired look (we suggest mixing, matching & just going a little wild!)
Step 4: Dry it! We’re aware you are excited to throw these on and venture over to watch the surf contest, but drying time it KEY! Let your sunnies dry for plenty of time before putting them on!
Step 5: Wear Them! Wear you brand new DIY Roxy sunglasses out and about!
The sun is shining and we are more than enjoying the weather and taking advantage of this time to show off our latest DIY beachy creations! Here’s some of our exciting shots straight from the Roxy Beach House.
