Check Out This Great DIY gift idea from Miss DIY Sparkle

Who wouldn't want to be wearing one of these sparkling hats? No one that we can think of. Such a stylish DIY project that might even make the need for wearing a hat fun this winter season when you can look this cute! A great gift giving idea too for anyone on your list that loves herself some bling. Pick out a warm weather hat or one just to look chic in, and let's get to sparkling this baby!

Supplies:

  • E6000 Fabri-fuse
  • Crystal Katana
  • Crystalline Magical tray
  • Preciosa Crystals in Vintage Rose 16ss and 12ss, and Light Amethyst 20ss

How to:

Step 1: Empty your Preciosa 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 2: Apply a few small dots in a straight row of the E6000 Fabri-fuse glue onto the hat. Then, using your pick-up tool, pick up one crystal at a time and press into the glue dots on the hat. Continue this until this row is complete, allowing dry time as needed. I started with the center of the cuff, with the Preciosa Light Amethyst 20ss crystals, making a straight line. 

Step 3: Using Preciosa Vintage Rose 16ss, make an additional two rows using a window pattern, above the center line. Using the same size and color, Vintage Rose 16ss, continue by making an additional two rows using a window pattern, below the center line. You should now have 5 rows completed. One center row of Light Amethyst 20ss and four rows of Vintage Rose 16ss.

Step 4: Using Preciosa Vintage Rose 12ss, make an additional three rows using a window pattern, just above the two 16ss rows. Using the same size and color, Vintage Rose 12ss, continue by making an additional three rows using a window pattern, just below the two 16ss rows.
 

Step 5: Now put on your DIY hat and brave this cold weather with a sparkly melon, feeling shiny on the inside and out!
