sparkles

last night i made a sparkly swarovski headband. not quite finished yet, i still need to attach an elastic. i bought these colours to go with my christmas party outfit but ended up not having time to start on it. oh well, any day can be a sparkly day, right?


 

our good friend (and marcia's roommate) saw some rhinestone headbands at a jewelery store with her daughter and wanted to make some for her for christmas.  the kid likes shiny things.  the headbands were 35 bucks at the store.  after last night i almost think it's worth it!  i misplaced my bead pilers (which would've made it easier to pick up the crystals) and the glue gun was maybe not the cleanest choice of adhesive.  but i figured it out in the end and it only looks sloppy if you bring it up to your nose.  :)

You can get "hotfix" rhinestones ... heat to affix! Simple as that!
