A Useful & Sparkling DIY Customized Gift Inspiration!

When dreams come true, it’s fun to celebrate with sparkles & smiles!

Recently my friend graduated culinary school and she now has the wonderful opportunity to take her skills to the gorgeous wonders of Spain! She’ll be living there for a few months, training under a 5 star chef. With incredible hard work and determination, her dreams are really and truly, coming to fruition. I couldn’t be happier for her!

Fiesta

She threw a fabulous tapas themed fiesta to celebrate and I wanted to give her something fun, special and sparkly (of course) to commemorate her BIG accomplishment! Here’s what I made her….

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_4

A customized sparkling apron featuring Swarovski Crystal Rhinestone Flatbacks!

I found a colorful apron from World Market. I just swoon over everything in that darn store, so I had to go in with a mission and not stray, because if I did, I would have been tempted to take home one of everything. Mission successfully completed!

I imagine aprons can take a beating with all that is going on in the kitchen and I wanted to be sure the Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks would stay secure and last a very long time. In order to do this, I glued each crystal using E6000 glue.

Swarovski_Crystal_2088_Flatback_rhinestone_crystals_wholesale

I used the Swarovski Crystal 2088-12ss (~3mm) Clear Crystal Flatbacks

Crystal_Katana

I also used my handy-dandy Flatback Rhinestone tool, the Crystal Katana! This helps to pick up the stones, place them exactly where I want them and secure them in place. I couldn’t do this project with out it! That’s GOLD Jerry… GOLD! (haha…if you’re a long-time Seinfeld fan like myself, you’ll appreciate that reference 😉

How to glue crystals to clothing instructions 1

I arranged the Swarovski Crystals in little flower formations, with different quantities in each floret, randomly on the belt of the apron. I wanted to compliment the flower pattern on the apron, as well as accentuating hints of sparkle.

How_to_glue_crystals_to_clothing_instructions_2

It’s simple and sweet, and complimented her style beautifully!

Thankfully, she Loved it! She put it on and wore it around, showing all her friends, which warmed my heart & was very sweet of her!

If you’re thinking of a little gift for someone in your life, keep in mind that it doesn’t need to be much, but it’s always much more appreciated when you add a personal touch. When you put a little extra time and effort into making something handmade from your heart, it demonstrates how much you care, which is touching in and of itself.

Hey Chicago Whaddya Say, the Cubs Are Gonna Win Today! Go Cubs Go!

9626523-mlb-nlcs-los-angeles-dodgers-chicago-cubs-1-850x560

What an exciting World Series baseball game between the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians! WOW! I’ve never seen a more fun, nail-biter of a game! Thankfully our beloved Cubbies FINALLY after 108 years, became champions once again!

Although I’m from Arizona, my hubby Mike has been a die-hard Cubbies fan for his whole life. So if my Hubby’s a Cubbie, I’m a Cubbie 🙂

His dreams came true when his brother, who lives in Chicago, called him up last week and said, I have tickets to the World Series games 4 & 5, do you wanna go? Well…it took 0.2 seconds for him to say YES!!!

I was so excited for him! He was going to be staying at his brother & sister-in-law’s house and I thought, how fun would it be to bling out some little Cubs shirts for his 18 month old niece! I quickly got to work and here’s what I made…P.S. I love them so much!

diy-instructions-on-how-to-glue-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt

I printed out the Cubs logo and cut out the area that I wanted to add my Swarovski Crystals. Bling-Bling-Baby!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-cubs-emblem

I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal Hot Fix Flat Back stones on this one, which was a perfect size for making two rows of crystals for the big C.

diy-swarovski-crystal-cubs-shirt-instructions

After placing the crystals in the C, I started heating up my iron. I used a pieces of thin parchment-like paper and softly laid it on top of the stones. Then I pressed the iron down on the C. I pressed hard and held it there for several minutes. I kept doing this process for several more minutes. I checked the stones one by one, to make sure they were secure and if I found a loose one, I used the Bejeweler Pro Hot Fix Tool to secure it in place.

diy-swarovski-crystal-flat-backs-to-shirt-for-cubs

So CUTE! I love how the clear crystals match the clear crystal buttons on this little sweater.

I didn’t stop there….my next one was an iconic picture with much more detail. Drum roll please….

holy-cow-sparkling-shirt-diy-cubs

Well… Holy Cow, it’s Harry Caray!

What a fun guy he was and it was fun to pay tribute to him and his iconic over-sized glasses! I used the 2078-12ss Swarovski Crystal Flatbacks for the details of his eyes, smile chin and hair and the rest I used the 2078-30ss Swarovski Crystal Hot Fix Flatback Rhinestones. These are the sizes that I liked best, but Swarovski offers a large variety of sizes,colors and styles for all of your crystal projects. Plus, you can’t beat our wholesale prices on all your favorite Swarovski Crystals!

diy-swarovski-crystals-to-shirt-holy-cow-cubs

I’m not done yet! Third times a charm, right?! We needed all the luck we could get! I had one more pink T-shirt I wanted to bling out, so I went with a classic Cubs logo for the last one and I made an extra girly, extra sparkly one!

Go Cubs Go!

I used the same C cut out as the first one, but this time I used the Swarovski 2078-30ss Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the extra brilliance. It shines pinks, blues and yellow sparkles! I used the 2078-16ss Swarovski Crystal AB Hot Fix Flat Back Rhinestones for the UBS.

I had so much fun making these sparkling Swarovski Crystal shirts for our sweet little niece, everyone loved how they turned out and I’m sure she will be wearing one of them for the victory parade today!

See Why This Sparkling Halloween Mask is the Cat’s Meow!

happy-halloween

It’s that fun time of year where rich fall colors delight our senses, pumpkins line the doorsteps and that eerie feeling of something spooky is just around the corner…. HALLOWEEN!

Halloween will be here before you know it, as as we thoroughly enjoy our spiced lattes (down to the last delicious drop), it’s fun to ponder… what shall I be this year?

besties

I haven’t decided what I’ll be this year, but my best friend Lauren (here we are having a ball at her wedding) is going as a kitty cat and asked me to add some Swarovski Crystals to her cat mask. Well, she certainly came to the the right person for that job (I’ve got crystals coming outta my ears, no not literally, that would just be ridiculous  😉 BUT, I do leave a trail of sparkles everywhere I go (I swear, every week the vacuum consumes more crystals than Kashi hair!)…so honestly, how can a bestie refuse?

besties-forever

I had a lot of fun embellishing her cat mask with Swarovski Crystal Flat back Rhinestones and I thought it would be fun to show you what I created and give you the step by step instructions on how to create something similar for yourself, or for your bestie  🙂

Steps to Embellish Your Halloween Mask with Swarovski Crystals

Here is what you will need to add Swarovski Crystals to a furry mask. (please note: the mask will need to be furry to be able to affix the Hot Fix Rhinestones, if it is not furry, then you will need to glue them on using an epoxy glue, my favorite being the E6000 glue). Below are the Crystal shapes that I used, but there are numerous different styles of Swarovski Flat backs to choose from to get your creative juices flowing.

Swarovski Crystal Bow Tie Flat Back Rhinestone 2858-12mm Bowtie Crystal Hot Fix

Supplies

1 Furry Cat Mask (I couldn’t find the exact one she sent me, but here are some options to choose from)

Crystal Katana Tool

Bejewler Pro Hot Fix Tool

I started with a plain black cat mask (I guess I was so excited to start adding the Swarovski crystals, that I forgot to take a picture of the plain mask, but hey, I’m sure you can use your wild imagination  😉

Starting with one side of the top of the eye, I used the crystal Katana to pick up the crystals and place them where I wanted them (I have found that this method is MUCH easier than using tweezers). Next, I used the Bejewler Hot Fix Tool to secure the crystals in place which only take a few seconds for each stone.

One great tip that I have found to work very well, is to use one size smaller tip on the bejewler tool than your stones, this way the hot tip won’t come into contact with the underside of your project, so that there is no way it can inadvertently heat up or ruin any part of your project. Pass that tip along to your Bejewler friends – they’ll love ya for it!

Before you know it, your plain black cat mask is looking like the Cat’s Meow!

I decided my bestie’s kitty mask just had to be as regal as she is, so I added a little crown on the top, accentuating the bottom with the beautiful shaped Leaf Flatback.

Last but certainly not least, for the final touch, I added the Bow Tie Flatback as her adorable little noes accent. I think it’s as cute as a button!

So there you have it, the final embellished kitty mask and it only took a couple of hours. I sent it off to Lauren, she absolutely LOVED it and can’t wait to show it off!

I hope this project inspires you to create something fabulous & sparkly this Halloween! Please post and share pictures with me of you, your friends’ or kiddos Halloween costumes this year, I would LOVE to see them!
