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!
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!
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.
I started with the 2088-20ss Amethyst and 16ss Amethyst Swarovski Rhinestones.
I used the 2088-16ss Crystal and 2088-12ss Crystal and Crystal AB for the detailed fill in work.
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!)
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.
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.
Last but certainly not least, I used the 2709-13mm Rhombus Swarovski Crystal Flatback for the center.
Here’s Kashi & I getting ready for trick-or-treaters!
I hope everyone had a fun Halloween! I’d love to see you or your kiddo’s/doggies costumes!
