Step-by-Step Instructions

STEP 1: Print and cut out the text pattern shown in the illustration.

STEP 2: Create a “dialog box” of similar sizing as the pattern or simply print it out to correct size and stick the text pattern created in the previous step on it. Place the pattern onto a fabric piece and cut out the shape. Repeat this step with the fusible interlining piece.

STEP 3: Place the interlining in between the T-shirt and the fabric and iron to secure.

STEP 4: Place the transfer sheet over the pattern. Place the Swarovski Flat Backs No Hotfix over the pattern exactly over the text using tweezers.

STEP 5: Place the transfer film over the text and pull the transfer film back to get all the crystals on to it as shown in our illustrations with this step.

STEP 6: Stick the transfer film onto the T-shirt and iron it with hot iron so the hotfix glue on the back of the stones adheres to the fabric. Press the iron firmly down on top of the transfer for about 30 seconds.

STEP 7: Let the transfer cool and then remove the film slowly. If some of the stones do not stick to the fabric repeat this step until all the stones are securely affixed to the fabric.

DIY Face Gems ~ Applying Swarovski Crystals to Your Face Is Oh So Fun!

What to be, what to be for Halloween this year?? I didn’t plan my costume out in advance this year, so on the day of I found myself rummaging through our costume/party box full of fun wigs, funky sunglasses & all kinds of comical pieces, one of my favorites being a bright pink cowboy hat. I had just worn the pink cowboy hat, so alas I was uninspired.

Just then a light bulb went off in my mind!

Ah ha! CRYSTALS! I looooove crystals & have them everywhere, so why don’t I embellish my face!

Harmony Halloween 2015

It was so fun, really easy and I always love getting creative!

If I had more time, I would have added a lot more. Who knows maybe next year I’ll be a crystal princess and go all out!

Harmony Halloween 2 2015

I couldn’t find body glue anywhere, so I used eyelash glue and it worked really well. Just a little dab will do ya. I put a tiny dab of glue on my face and used the Crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and apply them to the glue. I pressed down for a few seconds and then it was on to the next. It was that simple!

I was inspired by this gorgeous picture!

I applied different colors and sizes of the Swarovski Crystal 2088 Flatbacks to the areas that I wanted sparkle.

Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Amethyst

I started with the 2088-20ss Amethyst and 16ss Amethyst Swarovski Rhinestones.

Swarovski Crystal Flatback Rhinestones Clear Crystal Wholesale from Rainbows of Light  Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks Crystal AB

I used the 2088-16ss Crystal and 2088-12ss Crystal and Crystal AB for the detailed fill in work.

Swarovski Flatback Rhinestones 2520 Rectangle  Swarovski_5741-Blush_Rose_Heart-Beads

I also used a couple pieces of the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks 2520-10x8mm Cosmic Style as well as the 2808-6mm Heart Flatback Rhinestone (super cute heart, one of my faves!)

Swarovski Crystal Sew on Stones 3223 Nevette stones from Rainbows of Light

I found some of these cute Swarovski Crystal 3223-12mm Nevette Sew On Stones and threw a few of these on. They have a flat back which worked well and I just love this shape. I wanted to add different shapes and colors to make it as unique as possible.

2494 Swarovski Crystal Starlette Flatback Rhinestone from Rainbows of Light  2540 Curvey Swarovski Crystal Flatback

For some dramatic accents I applied the Swarovski Crystal 2494-10mm Starlet Flatbacks as well as the 2540-7mm Curvey Flatback in the beautiful coating of Crystal Paradise Shine.

2709 Swarovski Crystal Rhombus Flatback wholesale from Rainbows of Light

Last but certainly not least, I used the 2709-13mm Rhombus Swarovski Crystal Flatback for the center.
