It’s that time of year again! The time when we get caught up in the spirit of winter holidays and gift giving even when Halloween just happened one week ago… But getting into the spirit early is pretty much inevitable. Christmas commercials are airing, Jingle Bells is blasting on the radio, and I know you are starting to hint to your friends and family things that you wouldn’t mind seeing under the tree. As much as I love getting presents, my favorite part of the holidays is giving others presents. So to start the ball rolling on some affordable ideas, here’s a super simple DIY you can make for any lady in your life. It’s so easy, you can whip out a dozen of these and be good to go before December arrives!
Or you can just make one for yourself (like I did), because hey, we all need a little pretty in our lives, right? It’s so fun too—it’s like a grown-up take on bedazzling!
What you’ll need:
Let’s do this:
1. With your wire cutters, cut off the gemstone sections you want to use on your wallet. Basic wire cutters can cut through most store-bought metal accessories, but I would recommend double checking the headband or necklace before purchasing it for this project.
3. To get more control with the glue, squeeze some out on a flat surface and use a toothpick to spread a thin layer evenly along the back of a gemstone. Be careful not to put too much on—nobody’s got time to clean up goop squishing out everywhere!
