Recently we’ve been seeing tons of cropped tops all over the place. With Coachella rolling in we thought it was the perfect time to spruce up one of our cropped tops with neon accents. We had so much fun creating this piece and can’t wait to rock this look all summer long.

SUPPLIES:
3/8” Imported Chromspun Grosgrain in Neon Green

Magna Tac Glue

Scissors

Cropped Top (Forever 21)


STEPS:

Wrap your 3/8” Imported Chromspun Grosgrain Ribbon around the hemline of your cropped top.

Cut the 3/8” Imported Chromspun Grosgrain once it circles around the top.

NOTE: If there is an elastic band in the back make sure to leave it uncovered or else your top will no longer stretch

Now that your 3/8” Imported Chromspun Grosgrain ribbon is measured, carefully glue it down.

Use a small amount of glue since the ribbon is very thin. You can add more glue later if you feel it is necessary.

Repeat the above steps for any additional area you choose to embellish. We chose to highlight both straps by measuring the ribbon, cutting it and gluing it down.

Make sure your top is perfectly dry before you show it off to all of your friends!
