DIY: Wedding Bouquet Jewelry

By Blerona

Bouquets! What can we say about a wedding bouquet other than they are the second or third most important part of your wedding day accessories. There are always so many new trends every season that go away as quickly as they come and some that always stay with us. Like wedding bouquet jewelry, where pearls or Swarovski elements are placed in between or in the middle of a flower itself. And the look is well, Glamorous and Beautiful without looking tacky. While looking online for bouquet jewelry I realized they can get a bit pricey, so I decided to make my own DIY versions.

Bouquet jewelry usedSwarovski Pear shaped sew-on jewel, 8mm faux pearl, ss20 Swarovski flatback (crystal) -Directions for each below

Materials:

Optional Swaroviski elements and pearls

Learn How to make this eco-friendly vase, same bouquet jewelry as photo above


Directions For flat back rhinestones, & H.F. Swarovski Pearl:

  • Step 1: Take straight pin and dip the flat end in E-6000 glue and stick it to the flat surface of the rhinestones or half pearl.
  • Step 2: let it sit for about 20 minutes before placing in flower.

Directions For Swarovski pear sew-on jewel:

  • Step1: Measure and cut a piece for cardboard foam that fits exactly behind the sew-on jewel.
  • Step2: Stick two straight pins in the cut cardboard foam and place glue ontop of the straight pins and cardboard then stick to the back of the pear sew-on. Let it sit for 25 minutes before placing in flower.

Directions for Faux Pearl Strand

  • Step1: Take a straight pin and dip it in E-6000 glue about 1/2″ on the flat tip. Then take one pearl from the strand.
  • Step2: Take the straight pin and slip it threw the hole in the pearl. Clean the pearl for extra glue and let it set for 20minutes before placing in flower.

Swarovski Sunglasses

By Blerona

At M&J Trimming we can’t help but embellish everything we see. And what better accessory is there to embellish in the spring and summer than your sunglasses. I’ve added Swarovski rhinestones to a pair of sunglasses that I purchased for $10 dollars and now they look $200. They have a beautiful sparkle to them when the sun hits them, the perfect shine to brighten up your day.

Materials

Directions: Hot fix rhinestones are applied to garments using heat, the adhesive is already fixed to the back of the stone.  To apply hot fix rhinestones you may use an iron or the preferred method by using a rhinestone hot-fix setter

To learn more about using hot-fix setters please watch our video.

 

 

Embellish Your Clothes Using Rhinestones

7

By Goldie

There are many simple ways to add some fun and color to your clothes. Whether being something you already own or a new purchase you want to spruce up. I would like to share with you a quick way too embellish your clothing using rhinestones and a rhinestone setting. I choose to embellish a small portion of the pocket of these jeans.

I used:

Directions:

  1. Choose the rhinestones you would like to work with and accompanying setting.     
  2. Using a fabric marker or chalk draw your rhinestone design.  It works best to do this on the back of the fabric since you will position your fabric face down in the setter.
  3. Place your rhinestone on the bottom part of the rhinestone setter and place the nose at the top of the setter through the rhinestone setting.
  4. Place your fabric in between the two face down and press firmly .
