Check Out This Great DIY gift idea from Miss DIY Sparkle
Here's a super simple, festive, DIY project for everyone on your list! Whether it be for your kid's teacher, your nail artist, your house cleaner, your favorite delivery person, your co-worker, or your BFF. It's fast, inexpensive, yet personal, because it's DIY and looks amazing! Let's get to it!
- E6000 Plus no odor
- 3cc syringe
- 18 gauge tip
- Crystalline pick-me-up tool
- Crystalline Magical tray
- LUX Austrian Crystal in Jonquil AB 20ss, Light Rose AB 30ss and Aquamarine 16ss
Step 1: Attach the 18 gauge tip to the syringe. Fill your syringe with the E6000 Plus, wall to wall, making sure there are no bubbles. (There is no need to fill it up all the way. In fact, I find it easiest to use smaller amounts of glue at a time.) Then insert the plunger end of the syringe, pushing the glue to the tip.
Step 2: Empty your LUX Austrian crystals into your magical tray and give the tray a slight shake and it will magically flip the crystals over, crystal side up so they are easy for you to pickup.
Step 3: Apply a few small dots of the E6000 glue with your syringe to the ornament. Then, using your pick-up tool, pick up one crystal at a time and press into the glue dots on the ornament. Continue this procedure until your ornament is complete, allowing dry time as needed. (E6000 dries pretty quickly, however, I'm noticing the E6000 Plus doesn't seem to dry as fast as the original E6000 formula. So, just be aware of this on shiny and smooth surfaces, as your crystals may slide a bit as you are working.)
Step 4: Give your beautiful DIY creation to your favorite person or make several so you can keep some of these pretty gems for yourself!
